An investigation is underway after a lifelong New England Patriots fan died following “an incident” during the Patriots-Miami Dolphins game at Gillette Stadium in Massachusetts, officials said.

Witness Joseph Kilmartin told Boston ABC affiliate WCVB that Mooney “basically grabbed another fan. … They started fighting for a few minutes. At one point, another fan grabbed approached. He hit him…and (Mooney) just came out.”

“It was pretty hard to watch,” Kilmartin said.

No autopsy has been published.

The district attorney’s office said Monday that Mooney’s death “remains under active investigation” and no charges have been filed.

Mooney’s wife, Lisa Mooney, told WCVB, “I want to know what happened… What caused this?”

Gillette Stadium officials said in a statement: “We are heartbroken to learn of the tragic passing of Dale Mooney, a longtime Patriots fan and 30-year season ticket member.”

“We continue to work with local authorities to assist them in their ongoing investigation,” stadium officials said. “We extend our deepest sympathies and condolences to Dale’s family and all those who are mourning his loss.”
