A Cubs fan was murdered just outside the Cubby Bear last night. Amid the post-game chaos, Frank Hernandez whacked an SUV with a mini souvenir bat. The driver leapt from the car and battled with Hernandez until the driver's companion shot Hernandez in the chest. Hernandez had just watched the Cubs win against the Arizona Diamondbacks.
