McClatchy news servicesDecember 2, 2013 

One person was killed and three people taken into custody after an altercation Sunday in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo., where the Kansas City Chiefs were inside playing the Denver Broncos.

Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told The Associated Press that the incident was being treated as a homicide but that no arrests had been made. Snapp said the victim had returned to his vehicle to find a stranger inside it and a struggle ensued.

The victim, a man in his 20s, was found lying unconscious on the pavement, Snapp said. Paramedics began administering first aid before the man was transported to the hospital, where he died. His name was not immediately released.

Snapp said there were no obvious indications of how the man died.


Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon had 10 catches for 261 yards to become the first player in NFL history to record 200 yards receiving in consecutive games.

The 261 yards was even more impressive because Gordon missed part of the game after suffering a head injury.
