The death of a Newmarket man in the stands at Gillette Stadium during Sunday's Patriots game is under investigation by the Norfolk County District Attorney's Office.

Dale Mooney, 53, was in need of medical attention during the 4th quarter of the game as he watched from the 300 tier section just before 11 p.m., the DA's office said in statement to WCVB TV. Mooney was pronounced dead at Sturdy Memorial Hospital in Attleboro.

The circumstances of Mooney's death were not disclosed by the DA's Office.

His wife Lisa told WCVB that her husband, who is a season ticket holder, was being "taunted" during the game by Dolphins fans.  Fan Joseph Kilmartin said that a fan in a Miami jersey walked up to Mooney and punched him three times, knocking him unconscious.

No charges have been filed, the DA's office told WCVB.

A State Police spokesman told ESPN the DA's office is "investigating the facts and circumstances of the man's death, including the sequence of events prior to the medical incident."

The District Attorney's Office does not list a media contact on its website.
