Dodgers fan dies after stabbing near AT&T Park in San Francisco. A fight between fans broke out after the Giants beat the Dodgers in a baseball game at the stadium. According to Sports Illustrated on Sept. 26, an altercation broke out between two groups of the opposing team's fans minutes after the game ended on the corner of Third and Perry Streets.
The 'verbal disagreement' led to a physical confrontation involving a knife, and a man in Dodgers gear was stabbed and subsequently transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead.
After the Dodgers fan dies, police have arrested two suspects after questioning a total of three people who were held for questioning. It is not known at this point if those involved in the fight actually attended the game in question. The fight happened minutes after the Giants defeated the Dodgers 6-4.
Update from The Huffington Post, "The Medical Examiner's office has identified the victim as 24-year-old Jonathan Denver."
The Dodgers fan dies on the heels of a fundraiser for Giant's fan, Bryan Stow, that the team was running this very week. Part of the proceeds of ticket sales from the three Giants games this week will go to a special fund which was set up for Stow. Stow was beaten into a coma after a game on opening day in 2011 at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. Two men, who did not even attend the game, attacked a San Francisco fan wearing a Giants jersey in the stadium parking lot.
