2 Shot, 1 Reportedly Beaten At 49ers-Raiders Pre-Season Game

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS/AP) — In acts of violence reminiscent of a Giants fan beating outside of Dodgers Stadium on opening day, several violent acts have been reported outside and inside Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Officials say two people have been shot outside the stadium following a pre-season Raiders-49ers football game.

They also say one person was beaten badly inside a restroom and that victim has “life-threatening injuries.”

Several fights also broke out outside the stadium in addition to the reports of the two people shot. One of those victims, 24,  is also described to have suffered life-threatening injuries.The other shooting victim, 20, is expected to survive.

The cross-town rival 49ers, of San Francisco, and Raiders, of Oakland are one of the most contentious rivalries in sports.

The victims names have not been released and police say they have no suspects.

They also did not say what fans the victims were or even if the men shot outside had attended the game.

    I hope the victims will survive. This is serious stuff. The NFL does not need murder and mayhen at their doorstep. And the Oakland Raiders ( of which I am a life long fan) do not need negarive publicity. They need to win some games before their fans can boast of anything. Fan violence needs to stop.

    With a raider’s jersey being pretty much the standard issue uniform for southern california criminals people are still shocked this would happen? Come one. “Raider’s fan” and “criminal” are pretty much synonomous.

  • Not Surprised

    You see, this happens all the time. It’s nothing new at sports events. Drunken fans losing their cool with each other, and always one person or group taking more exception than the other, then starting a fight. This was the case at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day, but the LAPD and media took that incident and made it an ‘attack’ and unprovoked assault, also attempted murder. Why?? Maybe because the drunk, obnoxious sports fan victim was a paramedic (Post 9/11 society favors them) from out of town, and white, allegedly beaten by ‘Latinos.’ Even though it was wrong of those thugs to beat Bryan Stow severely, I still feel he brought it upon himself, and could have easily avoided such an incident, but he was drunk, and had all the characteristics of someone unable to swallow his pride, and not handle the taunts from Dodgers fans teasing him about the Giants loss that game. Beatings happen so much at games it’s pretty much expected, and fans need to behave and think better, instead of blaming security and owners. I noticed the words ‘attack’ and ‘unprovoked’ were not used in this article. Hmmm….

    • You are nuts

      That’s nuts. Noone deserves to be beaten, regardless of whether ot not they had something to drink or if they engaged in team chanting.
      The perps of all of this violence ARE the problem. And, they are the only problem. They are making the rest of us scared to go to games, and have effectively turned into terrorists.
      I hope they are all caught and made examples of.
