More violence at a professional sports event in California

Two people were shot after the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders pre-season game in San Francisco last night.

One of the shooting victims was listed in critical condition late last night.

The San Francisco Chronicle adds that one person has been arrested.
Police detained a suspect shortly after the shooting - a man wearing Raiders apparel who was found on a party bus in an RV section of the parking lot, according to San Francisco police Sgt. Frank Harrell. Harrell spoke to reporters outside the stadium.
A second shooting victim was found near Pole V in the parking lot, Harrell said, and had superficial wounds to his face. He was listed in stable condition at S.F. General.
In addition, according to Bay City News, a San Rafael man, 26, was assaulted and knocked unconscious in a restroom at Candlestick during the game, police said. He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.
This idiotic behavior comes less than five months after a San Francisco Giants fan was severely beaten by two people after a Los Angeles Dodgers - San Francisco Giants game in Los Angeles. He has made some, but not great, strides in his recovery since then.
