An Alabama woman has been charged with murdering a fellow fan because she "didn't seem upset over the Crimson Tide's loss to archrival Auburn," according to the victim's sister.
Police say the the alleged shooter, Adrian Briskey (pictured above), and the victim, Michelle Shepherd, were watching the game at the same party when Auburn returned off of Alabama's missed field goal to win the game — a loss that will likely knock Alabama out of the BCS championship hunt.
At some point, Shepherd and her sisters started joking about the outcome, saying that it wasn't as bad as when the Miami Heat lost.
"I was saying I wasn't even mad (about the loss). Like when The Heat lost in game four, I was sick to my stomach,'' Shepherd's sister, Neketa, told AL.com. "She started cursing. Her friends said she always did that when she got drunk and they took her outside."
The fight apparently spilled out from inside a Birmingham apartment building out into the complex's parking lot.
According to Neketa, the sisters got in their car and attempted to leave, but were concerned about hitting other partygoers. When Michelle got out of the car to ask them to move, things escalated.
According to police, the fight got physical and Briskey and Shepherd ended up on the ground, where Briskey shot Shepherd at close range with a "small caliber handgun."
"She said we weren't real Alabama fans because it didn't bother us that they lost. And then she started shooting," Neketa told the AP.
