A Northern California man has been charged with randomly stabbing to death a hardware store clerk who objected to his spray painting his face in the black and silver colors of the Oakland Raiders.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle (http://tinyurl.com/m597frj), Daymond Agnew told investigators that Allah told him to go into the El Sobrante hardware store to help people on Sunday morning.

The Chronicle reports the 34-year-old Agnew told investigators he spray-painted his face at the store because "the Raiders are favored by Allah."

Agnew is charged with stabbing to death 51-year-old Daniel Stone as the clerk told co-workers to dial 911. Authorities say Agnew fled the store in blood-soaked clothes, and in a bizarre twist was arrested after crossing a creek and ending up in the home of the store's owner.
