Argument over Alabama loss to Texas A&M leads to fatal shooting

The shooter fled the scene before officers arrived

An argument over the University of Alabama football team’s loss to Texas A&M led to a deadly shooting at an Alabama home, police said.

Two men started fighting over which team was better at a gathering in the Birmingham suburb of Bessemer when the game was in its final minutes Saturday night, Lt. Christian Clemons told news outlets. The homeowner asked the men to leave and shots were fired outside.

"It’s just another case of resorting to violence to handle differences," Clemons said.
