A squabble over the University of Alabama-Texas A&M college football game sparked a fatal shooting, police said.
The dispute late Saturday during Texas A&M’s stunning win over top-ranked Alabama came near the end of the thrilling upset, Bessemer police said.
Two men who gathered to watch the much-hyped showdown started arguing over “which team was better,” prompting the homeowner to ask them to leave, police said in a statement.
“Once outside the residence, shots were fired,” Bessemer cops said.
Up to 10 people inside the home ran outside to find Kealand Pickens, 27, of Bessemer, with several gunshot wounds to the torso. He was later pronounced dead at a hospital in Birmingham, police said.
The suspected shooter fled before cops responded. Detectives know
