Man in crit­i­cal con­di­tion af­ter fight at Ravens game

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND -

A Jes­sup man was taken to the Mary­land Shock Trauma Cen­ter with a se­ri­ous head in­jury Sun­day night af­ter an al­ter­ca­tion at M&T Bank Sta­dium with two Oak­land Raiders fans, who were ar­rested, Bal­ti­more po­lice said. Po­lice spokesman Donny Moses said he couldn’t con­firm how the al­ter­ca­tion started, but said he was at the sta­dium Sun­day af­ter­noon when he heard po­lice sum­moned about a fight on a ramp be­tween the third and fourth lev­els, and calls made for an am­bu­lance. Moses did not iden­tify the men who were ar­rested, or what charges they face. He did say they were from New York. Su­san Bauer iden­ti­fied the in­jured man as her brother, Joseph Bauer, 55. She said he was at­tend­ing the game with his wife and an­other cou­ple when he got into a ver­bal ar­gu­ment with a group of Raiders fans near a con­ces­sion stand to­ward the end of the game. Su­san Bauer said her brother’s head hit the con­crete af­ter he was struck, knock­ing him un­con­scious and caus­ing a se­ri­ous head in­jury. She said he was in crit­i­cal con­di­tion with a sub­du­ral hematoma, which causes blood to pool on the brain. Bauer said doc­tors had told the fam­ily he had a 30 per­cent chance of sur­vival. “My brother is in crit­i­cal con­di­tion on life sup­port over a foot­ball game,” said Su­san Bauer, who also lives in Jes­sup. “We’re in shock over this.” Bauer said her brother is a for­mer Ma­rine who works for Schus­ter Con­crete. She said the fam­ily was told two sus­pects were be­ing de­tained, but po­lice didn’t iden­tify them. Bauer crit­i­cized po­lice for not shar­ing more in­for­ma­tion about the case. “I’m re­ally up­set with the lack of re­sponse over­all,” she said. Moses said po­lice had re­leased as much in­for­ma­tion to the fam­ily as they were able to at the time.

Also Sun­day, a 27-year-old man is re­cov­er­ing af­ter be­ing shot to the neck in north­east Bal­ti­more, po­lice said. Po­lice re­sponded at 1:15 a.m. Sun­day to the 2900 block of Echodale Ave. in Hamil­ton Hills, where they found the man. He was trans­ported to an area hos­pi­tal and is ex­pected to sur­vive, po­lice said. Po­lice said a sus­pect “drove up and made a state­ment about money be­fore shoot­ing the vic­tim” while he was stand­ing in the neigh­bor­hood, po­lice said.
