Alabama vs. Texas A&M argument leads to deadly shooting
A tragic situation unfolded in an Alabama town early Sunday morning following Alabama’s loss to Texas A&M.
An argument over the Alabama vs. Texas A&M game led to a deadly shooting at a Bessemer home, about 15 miles outside of Birmingham, AL.com reported. Police said the game was in its final minutes Saturday night when 2 men got into a dispute at a gathering in the 1000 block of Sixth Avenue North.
Lt. Christian Clemons said the argument centered around which team was better. The homeowner asked the two men to leave because they were fighting.
Once outside, shots were fired and one of the men – 27-year-old Kealand Amad Pickens – was struck.
The victim was pronounced dead at 3:23 a.m. Sunday morning.
“It’s another case,’’ Clemons said, “of resorting to violence to handle differences.”
