No Holiday shoes for one Richmond man

But, most humans may not be smart enough to own a gun without harming themselves or others.

San Francisco Chronicle/Ellen Huet, 12/24/11. "Richmond man allegedly fired a gun accidentally that he had been holding in his pocket while waiting in line this morning to buy sneakers at the Richmond Hilltop Mall.

The man was one of hundreds who lined up outside the mall to buy limited-edition Nike Air Jordan Retro Concord shoes that went on sale today (12/23/11), said Richmond police Lt. Bisa French. Shoppers and shoe collectors, commonly called "sneakerheads," around the Bay Area lined up for hours before mall openings Friday to get their hands on the shoes, which retail for $180 and are replicas of the sneakers Michael Jordan wore at the 1994-1995 NBA playoffs.

The 24-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of gross negligence, French said. Police have not released his identity. No one was injured."
