(WWJ) The search is on for a suspect following a deadly shooting over sneakers in Detroit.

Police say it happened outside the Villa store near Seven Mile Road and Gratiot Avenue on the city's east side before 10 a.m. Friday.

The victim was apparently attending a release party when he got into an argument of some kind. Police did not indicate what the pair were fighting over except that the argument spilled outside where shots were fired. One man was killed.

The victim was a man in his 20s. 

This follows another dispute over gym shoes on a city bus that erupted into gunfire earlier this month.
