Permit holder defends himself against an armed robber, robber wanted the new Air Jordans the victim had just bought
A 16-year-old Middletown High School football player wanted to buy the new Air Jordans on sale Saturday morning at the Dayton Mall.
But Jawaad Jabbar got there too late and the shoes were gone. . . .
So Jabbar went outside to the sidewalk and pulled a gun on a man who had just bought the shoes, Phares said. Only, the man had a gun, too.
"The person who he tried to take the shoes from had a valid carry concealed weapon permit through Ohio, and when he was threatened with a firearm he drew his firearm and discharged it into the juvenile, who then died as a result of a single gunshot wound," Phares said. . . .
Police caught the other teens. They are in detention in Montgomery County awaiting charges.
They could face murder charges if it is determined that they had prior knowledge or were a party to the robbery.
