Arrowhead Homicide Leaves Police With QuestionsBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - December 2, 2013
A man died at the Arrowhead Stadium Sunday night after getting into a fight with a car owner. Allegedly, a man and his son were returning to their car after the Broncos-Chiefs game when they found another man inside the car.
According to witnesses, the two men got into a fight which led to the man in the car collapsing. The car owner’s son ran for help. Paramedics arrived at the scene and administered first aid before taking the man to the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Little is known about the incident and police are still investigating it. They are treating it as a homicide and are still trying to determine the cause of death of the man and whether or not the men knew each other. It has also not been determined if either of the two men involved in the fight were watching the game before the altercation occurred.
The police said that they are still interviewing witnesses to learn more about the details of the altercation and events leading up to the man’s death. Several people have been taken to the Kansas City Police Department for questioning but nobody has been arrested for the murder.
The Arrowhead Stadium shares a parking lot with Kauffman Stadium and has been the site of violence in the past. Last year, a Kansas City Royals employee was attacked and shot in the same parking lot. The gunman later returned to his vehicle and committed suicide.
