One man is dead and two more are in custody following a struggle in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium, the site of Sunday's Broncos-Chiefs game.
Kansas City police chief Daryl Forte announced the death, which he characterized as a homicide, in a tweet:
Detectives investigating a homicide at Arrowhead Stadium. Two suspects in custody. Will update as info becomes available.

Forte later reported that the victim died at the hospital following a struggle with two other individuals. He indicated that fan rivalry was not an issue in the death.
KCTV5 is reporting that two men went to their vehicle during the game, about two hours after kickoff, and found another man in the process of breaking into the vehicle. The struggle which ensued ended in the death of one of the men, though at present which individual died has not yet been released. The names of the suspects also have not been released.
Sunday also marked the one-year anniversary of Kansas City Chief Jovan Belcher's murder-suicide. Belcher killed the mother of his young daughter and then drove to Arrowhead Stadium and shot himself in front of team officials.
