Alabama fans involved in deadly shooting at party over outcome of Iron Bowl

A bizarre and tragic story has surfaced as a result of the Iron Bowl outcome.

According to the Associated Press, an Alabama football fan fatally shot another Alabama fan because the victim didn't seem too upset over the loss to Auburn.

Adrian Laroze Briskey, 28, was charged on Monday with the murder of 36-year-old Michelle Shepherd. The victim's sister, Nekesa Shepard, witnessed the killing firsthand and told the AP "it was over a football game." An investigation into the situation is ongoing.

More on the story from the AP:

"She said we weren't real Alabama fans because it didn't bother us that they lost. And then she started shooting," Shepherd told The Associated Press.

Shepherd said she and her sister were invited to the party by a mutual friend who also invited Briskey. About two dozen people were on hand.

Shepherd, the mother of three, was shot to death in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover and the women did not know each other before the party, Coker said.

Briskey reportedly became enraged when Shepherd joked that Alabama's loss "wasn't as bad as if the NBA's Miami Heat had lost a game."
