Two fans shot at Candlestick Park, another fan detained by police


Two people who attended the Raiders-49ers game at Candlestick Park on Saturday night were shot, according to Sgt. Frank Harrell of the San Francisco Police Dept. Another fan who attended the game is being detained for questioning.

Word of the shootings spread in the press box soon after the game ended. Soon after I wrapped up the live chat and posted a blog entry, I found Sgt. Harrell near the entrance to Candlestick Park, just off Highway 101.

Sgt. Harrell said the first victim was found in the V section of the parking lot with “superficial facial wounds.” The other victim drove his pickup truck to just outside the main gate, hopped out, stumbled across the road and was treated for “two to four shots to the stomach.”

The second victim is in critical condition, according to Sgt. Harrell. That victim was wearing a white T-shirt that said: “F… you, Niners.” The suspect also was in Raiders attire, Sgt. Harrell said, and he was removed from a party bus.

Both shootings are being treated as separate incidents, though they might be related, Sgt. Harrell said.

The 49ers released the following statement:

“The San Francisco Police Department is investigating a shooting incident following Saturday’s NFL game between the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders outside Candlestick Park. No other information regarding the incident is available from the 49ers at this time.”

The Raiders have not released a statement.

For the most part, fans were well behaved inside the stadium. One prolonged fight broke out late in the game, with numerous punches exchanged between a handful of fans. A slew of police rushed to the scene and restored calm. The 49ers won the game 17-3.

    The country did not prosper in the ’80s due to conservative values. A much higher percentage of the country was still union then. American manufacturing was still strong. Detroit was still strong. The middle class was strong. All things Reagan was AGAINST. Thank goodness that Washington was till controlled by those old school Democrats then, for the most part. Reagan was nothing more than tool for the Bush clan, anyway. A talking head.

    T- bone

    Boss had one catch and got taken out at the knees. He was limping after. D Moore is spiderman. DVD may be ok once things slow down a bit for him. Bush didnt get much work. D-line and LB core couldnt stop my grand mother. 49ers ran like 5 yards per carry. DHB made a nice catch. B Campbell looks like he could be a beast in time.
    Defence just couldnt stop the run to get off the field.

    I hear you Oline.

    The guy is a wall right now instead of a road grader.

    Just saying that I don’t think that a wall is bad right now. The guy was im-movable (is that a word?) in most cases. I understand the hype has him knocking guys backwards, but for now, I’ll take not being pushed backwards and letting the pocket collapse.

    So, are you guys going to name a time when this country actually prospered under conservative values, or are you going to keep splitting hairs and giving Republican spin on past events? lol.

    See Post 477
    Ronald Reagan, now take that and shove it up your libtard ass.

    Reagan campaigned on the debt then increased the National Debt $2 trillion and had little to show for it. Ray you might want to go back to beating up defenseless 75 year old meth heads. It’s what you’re best at.

    First and Goal at the two??? Save your TV and turn it off. Or purchase some rubber bricks.

    I’d spend a 3rd on Pryor the WR prospect.

    I’d have to imagine that he is at least as far along at that position as DHB was when we took him in the first.

  • Sullivan44

    Reagan’s policies (nee, Bush policies, Reagan was nothing more than a talking head for the Bush clan), would have killed our economy in the ’80s, just as Bush junior would eventually do 2 decades later, if it wasn’t for hard core Democrats with spines running Washington in those days.

  • DonManoukiansNeighbor

    We should take Pryor. He is hilarious!

  • TheGeneral

    Id take pryoy with the 3rd round comp pick seriously dont see any team giving up a first or second for him

  • Just Fire Baby

    Not sure why Priest is making all these excuses for Hue due to a limited camp.

    I thought Hue was the HC and #1 reason we improved last year?

    Doesn’t he have about 90% of his starters returning from last year?

    Hue SHOULD have a huge leg up on a Jim Harbaugh, who is ACTUALLY learning his players.

  • Yeah! Take Pryor. He’s hilarious! A big joke! He’ll fit right in the locker room (although the way things are going the Raiders could use a good straight man! LOL!)! And contribute right away! Let the laughter begin!

  • hendu

    Nope,mr/mrs is hilarious,see jackarse sullivan44,and his cousin alex,now THAT is comedy!I understand that youre happy,mr,youre NINERS won a preseason game,yee haw

  • Seymour Bush

    I am normally more optimistic than most but I am having a very hard time of seeing anything to be optimistic about other than we might’ve vaulted to the very top of the Andrew Luck sweepstakes.

  • J Hill

    I might be a bit more concerned if we lost with McFadden and Ford in the lineup.

    Or if I really thought Loper-Satel-Coop-Barnes was going to be starting opening night.

    Or if Boyd would actually be the 4th S on the field in a 4 S defense.

    Or if Groves would start over Goethel.

    Pretty sure none of that is going to be the case, so I’m backing off the ledge.

  • DKnight007

    Both teams looked pathetic last night. Raiders looked like they didn’t even care and the Niners were playing like it was their Super Bowl! haha

    Huey and Saunders have alot of work to do on red zone play calling and getting that O-Line to play much lower than they were playing. They were playing way to high, same with the D-Line and the LB’s were scared to fill the gaps.

    Chuck B has his work cut out for him to.

    Of course the Niners O-Line was getting away with holding most of the time also as usual when they play the Raiders.

  • DKnight007

    Raiders need to sign LOFA and have him start at WILL OLN and be the backup at MIKE MLB spot. Raiders need a vet with some experience at LB.

    Goethel and Groves looked terrible last night.

  • DKnight007

    For once I would like to the Raiders show some pride when they play the Niners instead of looking like lazy azzes who don’t know how to penetrate, fill the gaps and tackle.

    There’s an expression in the NFL: if you are winning your preseason games, you’re not looking at enough players. Backing off the ledge is probably a good idea, but there BETTER be some improvement against a vastly superior Aint’s team at their crib or we might be looking at the Al Saunders era before game 1.

  • SaintKaufman

    A game like yesterday could prove to be a great motivator and wake up call for a team that alot of ‘people’ project doing very well this season.

    Seymour, Campbell and the coaches will use that performance to get them boys pissed and I expect to hear about a very spirited week of practice.

    Just saying.

  • M Lonetree

    yep, overall last night’s Raider performance was pathetic.
    yep, overall last night’s NO Saints performance was pathetic.

    call for Hue’s head!
    call for Peyton’s head!

    dammit we wanna win the Super Bowl three weeks before the season begins because that is to our immediate satisfaction!!!

    next week two dismal teams with two dismal HCs will battle it out to see who s(cks the most!???!

    children understand that riding a bicycle might not go on the first try. might even require some scrapes and bruises to get it balanced.

    quote of quotes:

    “You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going, because you might not get there.” -Yogi Berra

    Because Father Pride & Poise is the unofficial apologist for the franchise. You’ll get this tack from him right until the season is lost, then he’ll go off on the players and coaches, anything to excuse the wretched “leadership” at the top. It’s his self-appointed mission.

    That’s the way it will be all year. The things that I want to see fixed that we talked about that I think we’ve shored up, being able to stop the run, being a little more consistent in the scoring zone, doing some things I think our football team is starting to do in practice,showed up today in the game. I am so very pleased, because my NINERS are very good. now I can go to sleep and not wet the bed any more, cause I am WHO’S ON FIRST and your not.
