(NEWSER)  – An eye for an eye... and an arm for a shoe? The NYPD says a 17-year-old in Brooklyn who stole a pair of Air Jordans at gunpoint lost an arm when the victim ran over the teenager and pinned him against a fence, PIX11 reports.

The teen, identified as Zachary Sam, allegedly used Craiglist to arrange to meet 39-year-old Philip Pierre to buy the $190 sneakers, but instead pulled a gun when he got in Pierre's SUV. "He put the gun to his head and told him he would shoot him, that he will not make it home to his family," a relative tells NBC 4. Sam strolled off with the sneakers, but surveillance video shows he only made it 100 yards before Pierre did a U-turn and ran him down, police say.
