A Minnesota high school student was allegedly shot dead by a 19-year-old man after they got into a fight over a pair of Balenciaga sneakers, authorities said. Augustus Sirleaf was charged this week with second-degree murder after 17-year-old Yaseen Johnson was found with multiple fatal gunshot wounds in Plymouth earlier this month. Johnson, a Rogers High School student, had been trying to buy a pair of the high-end sneakers from the suspect at the time, according to a criminal complaint obtained by KARE 11.
