Craziness after the Angels-Rockies game:

An off-duty police officer shot and wounded two men who had
assaulted him in the crowded Angel Stadium parking lot after Wednesday
night’s Colorado Rockies-Los Angeles Angels game, authorities said. The
officer, who was walking to his car with his wife and small children
about 25 minutes after the game, was hit in the head with an object,
police Sgt. Tim Schmidt said. The off-duty officer then shot the men
with his duty weapon, Schmidt said. Police did not immediately identify
the officer or the shooting victims.

I’ve been to the Big A a few times. The area around that stadium
doesn’t strike me as particularly dangerous, but I guess anything can
happen anywhere.
