Two Bulls Fans Shot in Philadelphia After Chicago’s Win

by December 13, 2012

Joakim Noah engaged in some not-so-friendly banter with the Sixers faithful in the arena last night. After the game, things escalated considerably, and two Bulls fans were shot while riding a train. (You might recall that last month, a Laker fans pepper-sprayed a Jazz supporter in Utah. You need to chill out, NBA fans.) Per the Chicago Tribune: “The shooting happened around 10:40 p.m. after ‘a little bit of banter’ between the two fans and two other people, described as between 16 and 19, at 46th and Market streets in West Philadelphia, police said. One of the Bulls fans, a 36-year-old man, quarreled with the teens and was shot in the stomach as the teens exited the train at 46th street, according to Lt. John Walker. The other Bulls fan, a 30-year-old man, tried to calm things down and was shot in the thigh, he said. Both victims were stable at an area hospital. They are from West Philadelphia, police said. No one was in custody.”
