Shoe Salesman Knocks On Wrong Door, Sets Off Crazy Chain Of Events

If it was just a shooting, or a car wreck, or a guy hit by a car, or a window-smashing shoe salesman, or an escape from a closet, then it would just be an average story.

Greensboro, NC -- A confusing shooting case in Greensboro Friday night landed a man in the hospital.

The people involved told police a guy selling shoes knocked on the door of a vacant house on Hackett Street around 8:00pm.

The salesman says four men pulled him inside the house and locked him in a closet.

Then, the four went outside and tried to steal the shoe salesman's car. The salesman kicked his way out of the closet and used a lamp to smash his own car window as the four tried driving away and that's when they backed into a tree.

Seconds later, one of the men in the car shot at the salesman, but hit one of his buddies instead.

That gunshot victim ran onto Highway 29, got hit by a car and flagged down another car for a ride to the hospital.

But the first driver to stop refused to help him.
The second driver took him to a grocery store where he called for help.

Police are still trying to figure out who will get charged.


You just can't make up stuff like this. laugh

A guy selling shoes door to door at 8:00 in the evening? Hmmmm...something tells me this guy wasn't exactly a "salesman".

You wouldn't believe the number of times that I've been waiting at home at around 7:30p.m. hoping that a shoe salesman would stop by so I could get a snazzy pair of sneakers for going out that evening.
