Reports: Falcons fan stabbed in neck

An Atlanta Falcons fan was stabbed in the neck by a 49ers fan in

the Georgia Dome parking lot shortly after Sunday’s NFC

Championship Game, multiple outlets are reporting.

According to FOX 5 News in Atlanta, witnesses said a man rooting

for the Falcons became involved in a verbal confrontation with a

man and two women cheering for the 49ers following San Francisco’s

28-24 win in Atlanta when the argument became violent and the male

49ers fan stabbed the Falcons fan in the neck.

Georgia Dome spokesman Jason Kirksey emailed a statement to The

Associated Press confirming an altercation occurred in a parking

lot outside the dome at 6:40 p.m. and that a 35-year-old fan was

taken to nearby Grady Hospital and in stable condition.

The statement said it is unclear ”if anyone involved in the

altercation attended the game” and that Georgia Dome and Atlanta

police ”are investigating the incident.”
