Alexandria Shoppers Injured In Nike Stampede
Several people were injured and a mall entrance partly destroyed early Friday in Alexandria as shoppers stampeded trying to get
their hands on the new retro Nike Air Jordan sneakers. Similar incidents happened across the country including a mall in Indianapolis.
The incident closed the mall for about three hours and was one of several across the country as frantic shoppers fought for the $180 shoes. Police say six people were injured and were transferred to local hospitals with non-life threatening cuts and abrasions.
