2 men shot in parking lot after OAK-SF game

Posted by Ryan Wilson

The headline Sunday morning isn't that San Francisco dispatched across-the-bridge rivals Oakland, 17-3, in preseason game. The bigger story is that a man wearing a "F--- the 49ers" shirt was shot outside Candlestick Park shortly after the game ended.

A 24-year-old man was shot two to four times in the stomach before driving his truck to Gate A and stumbling to security, said San Francisco police Sgt. Frank Harrell, via the the Oakland Tribune. The man was taken to San Francisco General Hospital in critical condition.

A 20-year-old man, also shot in the parking lot after the game, was hospitalized with superficial face injuries, according to Harrell who said, "We are treating it as separate shootings, but we believe they are related."

Police pulled a man wearing a Raiders jersey off a party bus and are considering him a suspect.

The 49ers released a statement but offered no further details.

"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."

This latest incident comes more than four months after San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow was severely beaten by two men wearing Los Angeles Dodgers gear outside Dodger Stadium. Stow remains in serious condition after suffering brain injuries.
