    Robber shot by patron waiting in line to buy Lebron James shoes

    Cops: Robber fatally shot in Little Five Points | www.ajc.com

    A pickpocket was apparently targeting people waiting in line to buy some new Lebron James shoes. It seems the alleged BG picked the wrong victim. The story does not provide more detail other than the Police did not arrest the shooter and that they believe it appears to be a case of self defense. The shooter apparently got back in line to wait for his shoes. The article doesn't even state whether the shooter had a CCW. I would assume that the shooter since they did not arrest him at the scene. It will be interesting to see how this investigation turns out.

    The "pickpocket" who had been out there all week upped the game by drawing on 25-30 customers in line. The shooter caught on tape firing while the thief ran away. Oops. But not charged. Another subject had a handgun also but is not seen shooting.

    Crazy stuff.

    I'm sure they'll wait 44 days for the MSM to paint him as a monster before they decide to give into the masses and arrest him for defending himself. Sure seems to be the norm lately...

    If the guy was, in fact, running away when he was shot then I think the shooter may have a problem claiming he was defending himself or anyone else for that matter.

    Watch the video... little doubt the guy was running away.
