A death outside Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City Sunday is under investigation, according to the Associated Press via ABC News on Dec. 2. Police have talked to three people, but there have been no arrests as of yet.

The cause of death of the man involved has not yet been specified, and the details around the situation are a bit sketchy. The man who died had gotten into an altercation with a car owner, it seems, after the car owner found the man inside his car outside Arrowhead Stadium during the Kansas City Chiefs and Denver Broncos game. The man who died was in his 20s, authorities have said.

Police indicate they are investigating the man's death as a homicide, though Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp indicates they don't exactly know what happened. He says, “We don't know if the person had a health condition, had a heart attack. We don't know.” The car owner and his son had come back to their car to find the man in the car, and the two men scuffled. The man collapsed, and the car owner's son ran for help.

Paramedics arrived and worked on the then-unconscious man, and he was declared dead at the hospital. At this point it is not clear whether the two men knew one another, or if the car owner had been at the game or had been tailgating with others in the parking lot. More information about the death outside Arrowhead Stadium is expected to be released soon.
