Two men were shot Sunday night in Fresno after the 49ers-Seahawks playoff battle, when some post-game posturing got out of hand, according to a report from the Fresno Bee.
The Fresno County Sheriff’s Office responded to reports of shots fired at a home where 15 people, including a pregnant woman, had gathered to watch the NFC Championship.
Heated words were exchanged after the game, a police official told the newspaper, with some Seahawks fans accusing the suspect, 39-year-old Amado Vargas, of being a “new” 49ers fan. Incensed, Vargas allegedly began threatening people with a knife before having it wrestled away from him.
Police said Vargas ran into a room and retrieved a handgun from a gun safe and began firing, striking two people in the leg before fleeing in a black car. The two male victims, ages 63 and 45, were treated for non-life threatening injuries.
