Police continue to investigate a death that occurred in a parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium.  Kansas City Police Chief Daryle Forte says via Twitter than the incident did not involve a dispute among fans.

According to Glenn E. Rice of the Kansas City Star, a man was caught in a vehicle that he didn’t own.  A fight ensued, and the man after being taken to a local hospital.  The cause of death, per Rice, was not obvious.

“I know it had nothing to do with the actual game itself.  Everything happened out here in the parking lot,” KCPD Public Safety Officer Darin Snapp told FOX 4.  “The hospital has told us that there were no obvious signs of how the person passed away so, we don’t know. The witnesses say that there were no guns or anything.”

Chief Forte added that multiple parties were being interviewed at police headquarters.  According to Rice, police took a total of three persons into custody.

The incident occurred on the one-year anniversary of linebacker Jovan Belcher killing his girlfriend and then committing suicide in a parking lot at Arrowhead Stadium.

    Incident happening on the 1 year anniversary of Belcher’s suicide is freaky.

    Did anyone else catch the skirmish that happened between a Broncos fan and a Chief’s fan after Decker handed the Broncos fan a ball after one of his TD’s? I was afraid that was related to this.

    Had this happened in Philly, it would have been the top story in every news outlet in America.

    If a car thief got a beatdown then that’s one thing. If it was a homeless person with a weak heart or sick, that’s another.

    All the same, you get caught in someone’s car, there’s going to be an interrogation….

    I’ll make comment, but wait for the final police report before passing judgement.
