One man died on Dec. 1 at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo. when the Denver Broncos were in town to play the Kansas City Chiefs. The death occurred in the parking lot and is being treated as a homicide.
There haven’t been any arrests made yet, although three people were taken into custody following an altercation in the parking lot yesterday, according to Fox Sports.
A spokesperson for the Kansas City Police Department, Darin Snapp, said “the man who died was found inside someone else's vehicle and a struggle ensued.”
''Talking to several witnesses that were out here in the parking lots, there was an individual who came back to his vehicle, saw someone inside the vehicle that did not belong. A struggle ensued between the two.
That's when the individual (who had been inside the vehicle) collapsed,'' Snapp said.
When paramedics arrived, they saw a man in his 20s, unconscious and laying on the ground. The young man died at the hospital.
Mr. Snapp said that it’s not yet known, and wasn’t apparent at the time, just how the young man died.
''We don't know if the person had a health condition, had a heart attack. We don't know,'' Snapp said.
As of this writing, the Kansas City police say that the death was suspicious, and that they’re going to investigate it as a homicide unless they discover something different.
Three persons of interest were taken to the Kansas City Police Department's headquarters for questioning.
In a macabre piece of timing, it was exactly one year ago on Dec. 1, 2012 when Kansas City Chiefs’ linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend to death in the morning, and then drove to the Chiefs’ practice facility across from Arrowhead Stadium where he shot and killed himself.
