HOUSTON (KHOU) – A robbery involving Air Jordan tennis shoes ended with a man shot in the head and his car crashed into a house Friday in northwest Harris County, deputies said. 

It happened around 10:45 a.m. in the 1700 block of Plumwood.

Investigators said two men were coming home from buying the new Air Jordan tennis shoes from Greenspoint Mall when they were attacked in their driveway.  Multiple shots were fired and after the driver was shot in the head.

His car ended up crashing into the side of a house on Plumwood, rupturing a gas line. Residents were evacuated as it took two hours for Centerpoint Energy to shut off the gas.

The man was rushed to the hospital. There was no word on his condition.  

The suspects got away, leaving the tennis shoe bag sitting on the sidewalk.  

The Harris County Sheriff's Office is investigating the shooting.
