Man With Cardinals, White Sox Face Tattoos Accidentally Kills Fellow Gang Member: Police

Plenty of the best fans in baseball have St. Louis Cardinals tattoos, just not on the face -- or next to a tattoo for the Chicago White Sox.

Richard Magnan faces involuntary manslaughter charges for accidentally shooting and killing his friend and fellow gang member, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. But what caught Daily RFT's eye is his astonishingly eclectic collection of facial tattoos.

Magnan has the STL logo for the Cardinals tattooed on his chin, just below the cursive "Gangster" tattoo he wears instead of a mustache. And on his left cheek, below a similarly unique pairing of a Jewish Star of David and a Christian cross, he wears the "Sox" logo for the Chicago White Sox.

It was not immediately clear if Magnan picked his favorites from both the National and American leagues or if he just really hates the Chicago Cubs.

Magnan was showing friends the gun he keeps for protection in a Walgreens parking lot over the Fourth of July weekend when his gun went off, striking Joel Bentley, another suspected member of the 2-6 street gang, in the abdomen, according to the Sun-Times.

Magnan fled the scene, but police arrested him Monday at a nearby hotel. He later admitted to shooting his friend, and he is being held in lieu of a $3 million bond.

Natural selection at work. I can probably work in a baseball-sucks joke here too, but I'll save it for another day

Guns don't just go off RFtrash tell it like it is, he wasn't practicing the 4 rules of gun safety just like he didn't practice tattoo safety, don't get tattoos when drinking..

Looks like there's also an old school Seattle Mariners "M" logo on the right side of his neck as well.

I hope this happens more often. It's so much better for society when the gang population reduces itself on it's own.

In all the talk of his tattoos... we didn't look at his eyes. . Which hold no light at all...seriously challenged male...scary.

Ok just a few things, the 6 pointed star is the symbol of the Folks faction of street gangs in Chicago of which the Two Six gang is associated with. Second, I doubt he is actually a Cards fan, but more then likely he is a member of the Two Six that has a branch on a stretch of St. Louis Ave. Either way the tattoos are pretty funny, and the fact this mope shot one of his fellow "gangstas" is priceless.

And this is why people with no trigger discipline shouldn't own guns.

Good for him... I'm pretty sure both teams won't miss his loyal support... Too bad they didn't find drugs on him or the guy shot... They could up the charges to murder because of a bad drug deal.....

If he had a face tat of the Cubs logo, he could use an insanity or incompetence defense...
