[San Jose Mercury News] One man was shot and several people were detained after a dispute that erupted among fans watching the 49ers-Raiders game at a downtown restaurant Sunday afternoon.
The victim, who was not identified, was transported with life-threatening wounds to a hospital. He was undergoing surgery Sunday night. San Jose Police responding to a 5:15 p.m. call from people at Britannia Arms on West Santa Clara Street found a man suffering from at least one gunshot wound, Officer Albert Morales said.

Before the shooting, customers were watching the football game at Britannia Arms, but police did not release any details of any verbal exchanges or altercations.
