Arrest in Coliseum shooting

A 19-year-old Union City man is in custody after a shooting in the McAfee Coliseum parking lot following the Oakland Raiders' loss Sunday to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to the Alameda County Sheriff's Office.

The teen was arrested on suspicion of attempted murder and weapons violations, said sheriff's office Sgt. Scott Dudek, an investigator in the case. The incident will be submitted to the Alameda County District Attorney's Office Tuesday, he added.

The shooting occurred in parking lot D around 4:35 p.m. after the Raiders 12-10 loss to the Chiefs, and left one man with “non-life-threatening injuries,” according to Dudek.

Several people came forward and cooperated with authorities following the shooting, and officers found the handgun believed to have been used in the shooting, Dudek said.

Dudeksaid the shooting is still under investigation and declined to speculate about whether the incident involved a dispute between rival fans. Investigators are also looking into the possibility the shooting was gang-related, he said.

The Alameda County Sheriff's Office splits security duties during Raiders games with the Oakland Police Department, according to Dudek.

“We plan for (all) the fans to be checked before they go into the coliseum,” Dudek said. “Unfortunately sometimes, incidents of weapons do occur.”

“We will be looking into, this week, whether further precautions will be needed” at future games, Dudek said.

Dudek said violent behavior at Raiders games does not necessarily increase after losses.

“It's pretty much steady no matter what,” he said.
