According to Rick Press of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Richard Sells, 43, was pronounced dead Wednesday night after being shot outside AT&T Stadium following an Oct. 11 game between the Dallas Cowboys and the New England Patriots.

Sells' family confirmed the decision to take him off of life support in a statement on Facebook:

Marvin Rodriguez was arrested at the scene, per Press' report, adding that he faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and aggravated assault causing serious bodily injury.

Prior to the shooting, Press' report says Rodriguez was involved in another altercation where he held a gun to another man's head before letting him go, only to shoot Sells.

At the time of the shooting, fellow Star-Telegram reporter Clarence Hill reported Rodriguez was "egged on by a crowd of people to kill the victim."
