Chicago Bears fan in Jacksonville for game fatally stabbed outside bar, police say

Authorities say a Chicago man who came to Jacksonville for the Bears-Jaguars football game was fatally stabbed during a dispute.

The Florida Times-Union reports 42-year-old William C. "Chris" Pettry died during a disturbance early Sunday inside Fionn MacCool's, an Irish-themed restaurant at The Jacksonville Landing.

Twenty-eight-year-old Matthew Hinson is being held without bond on a murder charge. Jacksonville Jail records didn't list an attorney for Hinson.

Police say Pettry was stabbed after a "disturbance" with two other people. Detectives arrived about 1:40 a.m. Sunday and arrested Hinson.

Pettry lived in Lake Villa, Ill., about 50 miles from Chicago.

Restaurant owner Toney Sleiman told the newspaper that no amount of security could stop such a "sudden act of violence."

He says The Landing remains a safe destination.
