A shooting at the Rose Bowl roughly three hours after the end of a football game between the UCLA Bruins and the Oklahoma Sooners Saturday left one man dead and another man seriously wounded.
Kamryn Stone, 18, of Los Angeles died shortly after being transported to Huntington Hospital.
Also taken to the hospital was a 51-year-old man whose identity was not released. According to a police statement, the man remains in stable condition.
The victims were discovered by police officers responding to reports of a fight near the stadium shortly before 11:30 p.m., in the area of Arroyo Boulevard and Seco Street.
“It’s a tragic event,” said Pasadena police Cmdr. Jason Clawson. “It had nothing to do with Rose Bowl operations.”
According to Clawson, no guns were found at the scene, which may rule out both victims as a possible shooter. Investigators found ballistic evidence, including shell casings, at the scene, Clawson said.
It was not known if the two men were part of a larger altercation or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Stone’s father, Barry told CBS News that Saturday was his son’s first day on the job working for ABM, a cleaning service.
Stone recently graduated from high school and was taking real estate classes at West LA College, according to his father.
The motive for the altercation that led to the shooting remains under investigation, but police said it appears the incident may not have been random in nature.
By the time of shooting, the stadium had long been cleared of patrons and their vehicles, said city spokesperson Lisa Derderian.
“Pasadena police are actively investigating the incident and preliminary reports indicated it was an isolated incident,” Derderian said.
