An Iron Bowl party turned deadly after one guest allegedly shot another for joking and laughing after the Crimson Tide lost the game, apparently indicating that the victim was not a “real” fan of the team.
The Associated Press reports that Adrian Laroze Briskey, a 28-year-old woman from Alabama, was released on a $75,000 bond from Shelby County jail on Tuesday. Briskey had been arrested and charged with the shooting of Michelle Shepherd, 36, a fellow Crimson Tide fan, allegedly because Shepherd was not sufficiently upset about the team’s loss on Saturday.
Briskey was reportedly outraged that Shepherd was joking with her sister Nekesa after the game in which Crimson Tide lost to its archrival Auburn 34-28. According to the AP, the Shepherds were joking that the loss “wasn’t as bad as if the NBA’s Miami Heat had lost a game.”
“She said we weren’t real Alabama fans because it didn’t bother us that they lost,” Nekesa Shepherd told the AP. “And then she started shooting.”
However, Hoover police Capt. Jim Coker wouldn’t confirm on Monday whether or not the game was the real motive. “That’s one of the things we are investigating,” he said, though noted that the two women had not met before the party.
