Police in Springfield are looking for the person who shot an 11-year-old girl who was standing in line outside a store selling the latest Nike Air Jordan sneakers.

Mayor Domenic Sarno says an orderly line had formed outside the store just before it was scheduled to open Saturday morning.

He tells The Republican newspaper (http://bit.ly/133OIix ) that police think the girl was an innocent victim struck when some young men trying to cut to the front of the line sparked a violent confrontation.

The girl was hit in the leg and taken to the hospital, but is expected to survive.

Sarno said the shooting may have been gang related.

The release of previous versions of the popular sneakers has resulted in violence in other areas of the country. (Associated Press)
