An Iron Bowl party in Hoover turned deadly after a woman brandished a gun and shot a fellow Alabama fan to death because she wasn’t taking the loss seriously enough. Adrian Briskey, 28, was arrested on Saturday after killing Michelle Shepherd, 36. Shepherd was a single mom to three children ages 8, 6 and 4. Briskey is currently out on bail.

Briskey and Shepherd were at an Iron Bowl party over the weekend when Briskey became enraged after hearing Shepherd joke around with her sister about Alabama’s last-second loss to Auburn. As you likely remember, Auburn’s Chris Davis caught an Alabama missed field goal and returned it for a 109-yard touchdown for the win. The loss killed then #1 Alabama’s chances to play in the SEC Championship Game as well as the BCS Championship Game.

Police are investigating the situation and say they aren’t sure how much of a factor alcohol and the Bama game played into the shooting. Shepherd’s sister, Nekesa Shepherd, says the game and alcohol absolutely played a factor into Briskey’s actions. According to Nekesa, she witnessed Briskey taking multiple shots of liquor after the Alabama loss. After the two sisters made a joke and said that the Bama loss wasn’t as bad as the Miami Heat losing a game, Nekesa says that Briskey then flew into a rage.

“She said we weren’t real Alabama fans because it didn’t bother us that they lost,” Nekesa said.

Reports say that the argument between Briskey and Shepherd was eventually taken to the parking lot of the apartment complex where the Iron Bowl party was held. It was there that Briskey brandished a gun. “And then she started shooting,” Nekesa said. “It was over a football game. I’m never going to forget it because she died in my arms.”

Briskey has since been released from jail after posting a $75,000 bond.

This isn’t the first time a rivalry party has turned violent, although it’s usually a result of fans of opposing teams getting into it. Just earlier this month, a man was arrested after using a stun-gun on his wife following the Chicago Bears-Green Bay Packers game.

    Yep… sounds like the South to me. The South is the most messed up part of the country. The incarcerate the most people, have the longest sentences, they have terrible educational systems, and all they care about is football, eating, and getting drunk. Heck, they are even the people who said that God and the Bible justified slavery. That Jesus Christ wanted people to have slaves.

    Freaking delusional.

    This does not surprise me at all. Hell, last month WebProNews reported about a guy in Georgia who ran back into his house to save a case of beer. That ladies and gentlemen is the mentality of the south.

    Anyone who has lived in other parts of the country and moved to the south know what I mean. The weather is great, but the people are backward as hell.

      I’M FROM THE SOUTH AND I FIND THAT COMMENT HIGHLY OFFENSIVE. IVE NEVER BEEN TO JAIL AND I DONT BELIEVE THAT IM BACKWARDS. MOST PEOPLE FROM THE SOUTH ARE VERY FRIENDLY AND SHOW GOOD HOSPITALITY. THIS WAS JUST SOME IDIOT WITH A GUN THAT DID SOMETHING VERY STUPID. COULDVE HAPPENED ANYWHERE. VERY BAD JOB OF STEREOTYPING.

    It’s sad she killed this mother over a game. It’s even sadder that she’s out of jail and only had to pay $7500(10%) to get out. I’m guessing she will get a suspended sentence for manslaughter and probation of 5 yrs. It’s hard for people to value human life when the judicial system doesn’t.
