JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office will release new information about the death of a Chicago Bears fan following a fight at The Jacksonville Landing Sunday.
Police arrested 28-year-old Matthew Hinson after witnesses say he stabbed 42-year-old William Pettry during a fight at Fionn MacCools.
Action News has learned Pettry is from Illinois and was in Jacksonville for the Jaguars vs. Bears game.
Pettry's wife posted this message on Facebook: "My husband William Christopher Pettry was taken from his family too early. Some idiot has taken his life. I'm so mad, just don't understand why."
Visitors to the downtown area tell Action News they are shocked to learn an incident of this nature could happen at a family-friendly location like The Landing.
