Off-Duty Cop Shoots Two People In Angels' Parking Lot

An incident in the parking lot at Angel Stadium last night began when two men hit another man in the head in with a beer bottle and ended when the third man pulled out his gun and shot them.


It turns out that the shooter was an off-duty LAPD officer. He was at the game with his family and no one knows yet what prompted the head smashing, but there were many witness, as the parking lot was crowded with fans heading home after the Angels-Rockies game.

The officer called a dispatcher at his department and asked for help, saying two men had choked him and asked him to get away from his car, Sgt. Rick Martinez said.


One of the men was shot in the head and is in critical condition, the other is in serious but stable condition. It's the second violent incident at Angel Stadium this season, after a man died in a fight on Opening Day.
