San Francisco, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The San Francisco Giants’ 6-4 win over Los Angeles was marred by the killing of a man wearing a Dodgers shirt during a fight between two groups six blocks away from AT&T Park.
San Francisco police said three men have been detained but not arrested in connection with the killing of 24-year-old Jonathan Denver. They also did not say if the fight was between Giants and Dodgers fans.
The San Francisco Medical Examiner’s Office said Denver was a plumber’s apprentice in the Mendicino County city of Fort Bragg.
According to investigation, two groups of men got into a confrontation at Third and Harrison streets around 11:39 p.m.
The argument turned physical, and one man was stabbed. He was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died from his injuries. It is not known the man who was stabbed attended the game.
Police currently have three people detained and are interviewing witnesses.
The killing happened one night after the San Francisco Giants held a fundraiser for Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was attacked outside Dodger Stadium in March 2011.
Stow suffered brain damage during the attack following an Opening Day game between the Giants and Dodgers in Los Angeles.
The two teams play again Thursday at AT&T Park, their last meeting of the 2013 season.
