WAVERLY, Neb. (AP) — Authorities say a 13-year-old girl was robbed at gunpoint of Air Jordan shoes after meeting a man to sell them at a park in Waverly, Nebraska.

Lancaster County Sheriff Terry Wagner said deputies were called to Jaycee Park at 5:15 p.m. Monday. The Lincoln Journal-Star reports the girl told deputies two men pulled up during the sale and one of them pulled out a handgun and ordered her to get out of her vehicle.

She got out and ran off, without getting money for the shoes.
