SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Two men were shot and wounded in the parking lot of Candlestick Park after a preseason NFL game Saturday night between the
San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders, police said. The shootings occurred around 8 p.m., shortly after the 49ers' 17-3 victory, police Sgt.
Michael Andraychak said. The victims are a 24-year-old man who was in a hospital with life-threatening injuries and a 20-year-old man who was
hospitalized and was expected to survive, Andraychack said. Their names have not been released. "We don't know if these guys are fans of either
ball club, we have not confirmed that, we don't even know if they attended the game, though that's a safe assumption," Andraychak said. Police
have not made any arrests or identified any suspects, and could not immediately say how many assailants there may have been. It was also unclear what
the victims were doing in the parking lot. The 49ers issued a statement acknowledging the shootings and the investigation, but offering no further
details. The violence was not the first involving a San Francisco sports team's game this year. In March, San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was
severely beaten by two men in Los Angeles Dodgers gear outside Dodger Stadium after the teams' season opener. He remains in San Francisco hospital
with in serious condition with brain injuries. Two suspects have been charged in the case.
This is crazy, fans seem to be getting out of control, if they were fans, I was a security guard and Yankee Stadium and was bit by a drunk fan, do you
think that this is one time thing, or some fans are out of control
