An argument between several Indian men during a match in Orlando, Florida, led to a shooting yesterday when one of the players, Francis Singh, was shot in the abdomen.

"The shooter was defending himself from an attack with a cricket bat which is similar to a baseball bat but it's flat," Orange County sheriff's Sgt. Spike Hopkins said. "For this man to bring a firearm to a sporting event is odd but then again, he has the right to do so. He has a concealed weapons permit and if, in fact, he was protecting himself, he was authorized by law to do so."
