Man dies days after being shot at Cowboys stadium tailgate
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) A 43-year-old Texas man who was shot outside the Dallas Cowboys stadium over the weekend has died.
Tarrant County Medical Examiner’s Office records show Richard Sells died Wednesday night at a Fort Worth hospital.
Authorities said he was shot Sunday during a fight at a parking lot tailgate party after the Cowboys lost to the New England Patriots.
Arlington police said 28-year-old Marvin Rodriguez pointed a gun at a man during a fight then shot Sells in the neck as Sells tried to break up another altercation.
Records show Rodriguez is jailed on charges of murder and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon. His bail has been set at $200,000. It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
This story has been corrected to show that Sells died Wednesday night, not Thursday.
