Man shot outside Oakland Raiders-Arizona Cardinals game

A fight turned into a shooting outside Friday night's Oakland Raiders-Arizona Cardinals game in Glendale, Ariz., the Arizona Republic first reported.

The newspaper said a man was shot in the stadium's northwest parking lot after a fight broke out during the third quarter of the Cardinals' 31-27 victory over the Raiders.

UPDATE:Police responded to a call from a man who said he had "accidently shot" another man in a parking lot near the stadium, according to a report by the Bay Area News Group. The men, who are both Arizona residents, had a verbal altercation that led to the shooting, Glendale Police spokeswoman Tracey Breeden said.

"The incident occurred approximately one hour before the conclusion of the Arizona Cardinals game, so there were very few people in the parking lot at the time of the shooting," Glendale Police said in a release obtained by and NFL Network. "No other parties or individuals near the area sustained any injuries as a result of this incident."

The victim was transported to a local hospital and is currently in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries. Police said the incident appears to be fan-based and charges are potentially pending on both parties.
