Two Shot At NFL Preseason Game In S.F.

SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 21 (UPI) — Two shootings and a beating marred the San Francisco 49ers-Oakland Raiders preseason football game at Candlestick Park, police said.

At least one suspect was in custody for one of the shootings Saturday night, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday. It was not determined whether the two shootings were related.

The suspect in custody — garbed in Oakland fan apparel — was accused of shooting a man wearing a T-shirt that said “(expletive) the 49ers,” police said. The victim — shot two to four times in the chest — was hospitalized in critical condition, San Francisco Police Sgt. Frank Harrell said.

In the second shooting, the victim found in a parking lot was reported in stable condition, police said. Further details were unavailable but police said they were trying to determine if there were links between the two incidents.

In a third incidence of violence involving fans who attended the game, police said a 26-year-old man was found beaten in a restroom of the stadium, Bay City News reported. He was hospitalized with injuries described as life-threatening.

San Francisco won the NFL preseason game by a score of 17-3.
