BROOKLYN - A 15-year-old is recovering after being shot in the foot outside of a Bushwick sneaker store this morning.

Police say the shooting may have been the result of an argument over a spot in line to purchase Nike sneakers.

Police say it happened just after 6 a.m. as the victim and other teens were waiting on line outside of a Foot Locker store on Knickerbocker Avenue.

Investigators say the victim and the alleged gunman got into an argument, possibly over cutting in line to get into the store. That's when the suspect pulled out a gun and shot the teen, police say.

After the shooting, the suspect fled the scene. He was last seen wearing a red hooded jacket.

Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
