A man trying to sell a pair of shoes to two other men was shot Monday afternoon in North Wichita.
Wichita Police Sgt. Andrew Do said the 19-year-old met the men in their car near 1600 N. Emporia.
After the man handed over the shoes, and money was exchanged, the men changed their minds and pointed a handgun at him, the man reported to police.

During a struggle, the 19-year-old was pistol whipped and shot in the shoulder, Do said.
He was transported by EMS to a Via Christi St. Francis for treatment.
The man’s gunshot would “is not life threatening,” Do said. “He’s stable.”
Police are searching for the suspects.
