An argument over Texas A&M defeating Alabama on Saturday resulted in a deadly shooting at a home in Bessemer, Alabama. According to AL.com, police say the two men involved were fighting over which team was superior when things escalated and turned deadly.  

Lt. Christian Clemons said the homeowner asked the men to leave the residence as the game was reaching its end. After the two men left the home, shots were fired outside before the game ended. 

Kealand Amad Pickens, 27, was shot multiple times in the torso. He was taken to the hospital after authorities had arrived, and Pickens was pronounced dead at 3:20 a.m. on Sunday at UAB Hospital. 

The shooter left the scene before officers arrived. Clemons said they know the person's identity though the suspect is still at large.

"It's just another case of resorting to violence to handle differences," Clemons said on the incident.

Texas A&M defeated then-No. 1 Alabama 41-38 with a field goal as time expired, a shocking loss for college football fans. The loss ended Alabama's 19-game winning streak, and was also the Crimson Tide's first loss to an unranked opponent since 2007.
