In a violent night, two men were shot outside of Candlestick Park on Saturday night after the San Francisco 49ers played the Oakland Raiders in a preseason game and one man was assaulted inside of the stadium.
The shooting happened around 8 p.m., San Francisco police Sgt. Michael Andraychak said. The injuries were initially described as non-life threatening, but Andraychak said one victim, a 24-year-old man, suffered life-threatening injuries.
The shooting occurred near the end of a preseason game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Oakland Raiders, which began at 5 p.m. Andraychak said he did not know if the victims were in the parking lot due to the game, or if they were Raiders or 49ers fans.
There was no suspect description available late Saturday night, and no one was in custody.
The shooting followed a violent incident inside of the stadium in which a San Rafael man was assaulted and knocked unconscious in a restroom, according to San Francisco police.
The 26-year-old man was assaulted between 7:15 and 7:30 p.m. in an upper level restroom during the game, Andraychak said. He was knocked unconscious, and was taken to the hospital suffering life-threatening injuries.
Police are searching for a suspect described as a Samoan/Pacific Islander male, 25-30 years old, between 6 foot 3 inches and 6 foot 5 inches tall, weighing 225 to 260 pounds. He had a goatee and long curly hair tied up in a pony tail, and was last seen wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
