A professional baseball game in Colorado turned deadly when two concession workers allegedly were involved in the fatal shooting of a coworker.
Rayvell Powell, 30, and Javon Price, 21, are currently being held on investigation of murder and first-degree assault in connection to the incident.
Around 10:30 p.m. Aug. 6, Powell and Price got into an argument with a third contract concessions employee, Gregory Hopkins, 41, while working the Colorado Rockies and Miami Marlins game at Coors Field in Denver, surveillance video allegedly shows.
“The victim [Hopkins] is observed arguing with a black male in black clothing. A short time later, a dark-skinned male wearing black pants and a light-colored hoodie appears and then fires a gun striking the victim,” an arrest affidavit states, according to television station KDVR.
“The victim runs down the stairs as the suspect continues to shoot at him. The victim drops a backpack and falls to the ground,” the affidavit continues. “While on the ground the suspect runs down the stairs and stands approximately five feet from the victim and fires four to five more shots at the victim.”
Hopkins died at the scene. The bystander was hit in the groin and reportedly suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Witnesses told detectives the fight may have erupted over a woman, KMGH-TV reported, citing the police affidavit.
