The highly anticipated release of the Air Jordan 11 Gamme Blue led to fights in multiple American cities Saturday morning.
At a Finish Line in Stockton, Calif., a few customers, one shirtless, fought inside the store. Fox 40 in Sacramento reported police were called but by the time they arrived everyone had fled the scene and no arrests were made.
Here's the video:
At the Southwest Center Mall in Dallas, police were called at 6 a.m. after a group of people tried to cut the line. No arrests or injuries were reported, but later in the day there was a shooting in the food court involving "two rival groups of young men," according to NBC.
It's unclear that incident was related to the sneaker release.
In the Bronx, a fight broke out outside a Foot Locker at 151st street:
