Four people were in custody following a fatal struggle with an unidentified man in the parking lot of Arrowhead Stadium, the site of Sunday's Broncos-Chiefs game.

The dead man, whose identity was not released but described as a white male in his twenties, was found in another man's car in the stadium's parking lot. A struggle reportedly ensued between the car's owner and the occupant which ended with the man collapsing to the pavement, The Associated Press reported.

"Talking to several witnesses that were out here in the parking lots, there was an individual who came back to his vehicle, saw someone inside the vehicle that did not belong. A struggle ensued between the two. That's when the individual (who had been inside the vehicle) collapsed," Kansas City police spokesman Darin Snapp told the AP.

Three other individuals, whose identities were similarly not released, were taken in for questioning but reportedly not charged.

"Right now they're persons of interest," Snapp said. "Like I said, until we find out exactly how this person passed away, we're going to investigate it as a homicide. They're not suspects right now until we find out exactly what happened."

Paramedics reportedly administered first aid to the victim at the scene before he was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The police spokesman added that though it was not yet clear how the man died, having apparently collapsed shortly after the struggle with the car's owner began, the incident is being treated as a homicide for the time being.

"We don't know if the person had a health condition, had a heart attack. We don't know," Snapp said. "We're going to investigate this as a homicide until we hear differently. Right now it's a suspicious death but we are going to investigate it as a homicide."

The incident occurred on the one-year anniversary of the murder-suicide of former Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher who after fatally shooting his girlfriend drove to Arrowhead Stadium and committed suicide in front of his coach and general manager on Dec. 1, 2012.

There has yet to be any connection made between this weekend's homicide and Belcher' murder-suicide a year earlier.

Additionally, in September 2012 a Kansas City Royals employee was shot in the same parking lot which also services Kauffman Stadium. The shooter then returned to his vehicle where he reportedly committed suicide.
