San Jose police arrested five people late Thursday night after a shooting and multiple fights resulted in injuries at PayPal Park following a San Jose Earthquakes soccer game.
According to San Jose police’s Twitter page, there were multiple fights and at least one shooting at the stadium and surrounding parking lots. One of the injuries was a person who suffered a grazing gunshot wound, police said.
The Earthquakes were facing Mexico’s Cruz Azul at PayPal Park, their home stadium.
Police said several people were taken to nearby hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. A gun was recovered at the scene.
According to police, an unlawful assembly was also declared during the event.
At one point during the game, a fan is seen on video leaping from the stands onto the field of play, running up to a group of players and throwing a punch. But it wasn’t immediately clear if the incident was related to the postgame violence and police response.
