Default SF Giants fan kills LA Dodger fan

Saw it on the news and found the following story on Global's website,

Los Angeles Dodgers fan fatally shot after game; three suspects arrested

Canadian Press

Saturday, September 20, 2003

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Three people were arrested Saturday in the death of a Los Angeles Dodgers fan who was shot during a stadium parking lot dispute after attending a Dodgers-Giants game, police said.

A police spokeswoman said late Friday that the fight was between feuding fans and that the shooter was rooting for the San Francisco Giants. But police said Saturday they were still investigating the motive and that it was unclear whether baseball was the issue.

Mark Antenorcruz, 25, of Covina, was shot once in the upper body about 10 p.m. Friday as he headed for his car after attending the game, police and county coroner's Lt. Gary Kellerman said. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police spokeswoman Lucy Diaz said Saturday that the victim had been in a shouting match with the three suspects, two men and one woman, and that one of the suspects went to his car, pulled out a handgun and fired.

One of Antenorcruz's companions told a passing driver about the shooting and the driver pursued the suspects' vehicle and wrote down its licence plate number. Police used it to track down the suspects.

Diaz said it was unclear what charges would be filed.

Neither baseball team commented on the shooting.

The Giants, who won the game 6-4, had already clinched the NL West on Wednesday. Friday's loss, meanwhile, dropped the Dodgers three games behind Philadelphia in the NL wild-card race.
That's seriously messed up. Killing someone is a hideous crime and killing over a baseball game not only makes it a stupid and senseless crime but also shows the degradation of morality of certain members of society. This truly makes me sick. You go to a sporting event to have fun not worry about getting shot because someone disagrees with you. What's next, getting your throat cut at a hockey game or how about being beaten to death at a football game.

The story said it was unclear whether baseball was the cause of the argument and subsequent shooting but the only other reason I can think of as to why people from SF and LA would be arguing at the game is criminal enterprise. But why go to a ball game and then settle things in the parking lot?

Not that this is any better, but at least it happened outside the stadium and not at the game. God, how many kids would have seen it at the game itself. I'm not surprised we haven't heard about something like this before. I'm waiting for the day when a fan walks onto a field, rink, whatever and kills an actual athlete on live TV.
