According to a source, a football argument between a New York fan and a Philadelphia supporter turned deadly outside of a popular cheesesteak establishment in the City of Brotherly Love on Thursday.
The two football fans were in line at Pat’s King of Steaks early Thursday morning when they got into a fight, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.
According to the allegation, the disagreement escalated and became physical before one of the fans drew a revolver.
Pat’s general manager, Tom Francano, told the newspaper, “They were arguing and it developed into a fight.”
“One person grabbed the other and held him down, while the other pulled out a revolver and shot him in the torso. It was only a single shot. “Right away, the cops arrived,” he added.
The shooter fled, but was apprehended by cops outside Independence Hall in the city’s centre.
According to the report, the unidentified victim, a 23-year-old, was brought to a local hospital where he died.
Pat’s was closed for several hours as police investigated — but the Philadelphia institution was quickly reopened, and customers lined up for hoagies hours later, according to the paper.
