Report: Man hospitalized after shooting outside Patriots-Cowboy game

A shooting victim was taken to the hospital Sunday night after gunshots were fired outside the site of the Patriots-Cowboys game.

Police outside AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas blocked off an area of the parking lot as they investigated the incident.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported a man was shot about two hours after the game and a suspect was arrested. The victim is still alive, the paper reported.

There’s heavier than usual volume in the area Sunday night with the Texas Rangers also playing a playoff game at their nearby ballpark.

  1. In retrospect, if I’m Godell, I would have requested that MLB push back the start time of tonight’s Blue Jays-Rangers games at their ballpark by two hours to 10:00 PM ET/9:00 PM CT to give people at the Cowboys game time to get out at the conclusion of that game. That probably doesn’t prevent this, but it might have made things easier by doing that.

  2. Yeah, guns are an excellent idea at stadiums and parking lots where alcohol flows and emotions are high. Real great idea and we can’t be infringing on our GOD given right to have a gun!

  3. America’s problem (gun violence) occurring at the site of America’s Team…imagine that! I guess snowballs at Santa Claus ain’t so bad after all.

  4. wallyhorse, there’s no chance in hell MLB agrees to move a playoff game to such a ridiculously late hour on the east coast, even if Monday is a holiday. Nor should they agree to.

  5. Please, this is nothing. The Philly fans threw snowballs at Santa back in 1969. Let’s not change the subject and let them off the hook just yet.

  6. Half of America believes the answer is MORE guns not less, human life is so cheap today and in all probability in an argument over a game!!!

    I just shake my head in despair and sadness.

    I hope he/she makes it how sad to lose your life over a petty football game.

  7. Why do Cowboy fans have to be dumb and shoot each other. Waste of a fan base. Be more like the Bills tailgates where the drunk people hurt themselves doing entertaining things.

  8. Here come the fun control looney a. BTW. Fire arms are not permitted in parking lots. NFL cannot control everything. For all these people that get down on fun owners I pray your house is never broken into. You can point your finger at the robber.

    Guns are what protects your freedom to write such stupid comments.

  10. How typical of those fans in Philly. Goin around shoo…What? It didn’t So it does happen in other cities! Because I’m constantly told how horrible those mean fans are. Decapitating the Easterbunny, stealing pots of gold from leprechauns and the worst, SNOW BALLS at Jimmy Johnsons finely groomed hair!

  11. Have not seen it mentioned so I’m asking……was it a Patriots fan getting shot?
    Clarence Hill tweeted…Per eye witness, suspect was egged on by a crowd of people to kill the victim….

    Yeah, guns do protect our freedoms – in the hands of competent, trained individuals like the American soldier. In the hands of some yahoo they take away the most basic of freedoms – the freedom to simply be alive.

  13. Another example to only watch the good games on TV, because theres only about 1 a week, instead of being surrounded by a bunch of drunks, likes to fight guys, and now likes to shoot guys.

    Let me ask all you 2nd Amendment gun lovers, when have you ever pulled a gun on and shot someone or pulled one out in self defense? Never is your answer? Thats what I thought.

  14. Wow! Went to game and the people were extremely nice in Arlington. I did not have one problem. Some advice from someone who travels to opposing stadiums once / twice a season: Wear what you want, root for your team. But, throwing it in the home team fans faces or HANGING AROUND THE STADIUM HOURS AFTER THE GAMES OVER, ESPECIALLY A LATE GAME, is asking for trouble! Sad, but that’s just how it is now

  15. I live a few miles away. It may not have even been a fan. I’ve seen guys riding around the parking lots on bicycles selling pot. The stadium is actually pretty close to a seedy area of Arlington.

  16. ” if I’m Godell, I would have requested that MLB push back the start time of tonight’s Blue Jays-Rangers games at their ballpark by two hours to 10:00 ”

    What the same MLB that wouldn’t adjust the Orioles schedule a couple years ago so the Ravens could have their home opener after winning the Super Bowl ? That MLB ?

    They aren’t moving or adjusting anything for the NFL.

  17. Just more gun violence. HAppens every day..in every city. Thats the USA now…please dont touch my guns. The mentality around this country is scary. You hear about gun violence..and people just want more guns. Flooding the streeets with guns wont solve the gun epidemic..it will perpetuate it. If guns were banned from people owning them…criminals will still get them and still use them. A ban on guns wont work. Laws wont work..criminals dont obey them. Theres really nothing we can do if you think about it. So..I guess..just hope your never shot.
