OKLAHOMA CITY — While the OKC Thunder played the Spurs Sunday night, a group of fans held a protest on the changes to Thunder Alley.

It was one week ago Monday eight people were shot after the Thunder clinched their series against the Lakers.

One of those victims remains in the hospital.

After the shooting team officials decided not to broadcast the Thunder games live on the video board outside the arena.

Now fans have created a petition drive to “Save Thunder Alley.”

Save Thunder Alley protester Angie Milligan said, “At least 9,890 were really good people that didn’t do anything wrong. They were here enjoying the game, supporting their team.”

Another protester, Joanne Infantino, said, “I can’t afford tickets to the game and I know there’s lots of people in our community that can’t but if Thunder Alley’s open and everyone can feel like they’re part of it even though we’re not inside.”

The “Save Thunder Alley” group has over 5,000 members on Facebook.

They plan to speak at Tuesday’s city council meeting.
