SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS/KPIX 5) — A Los Angeles Dodgers fan was stabbed to death after his team played the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park on Wednesday night, and police said Thursday one of two men detained in the attack would be charged with homicide.
Jonathan Denver, 24, was stabbed around 11:35 p.m. near Third and Harrison streets, four blocks from the ballpark where the Giants and Dodgers had played earlier in the night, with the Giants winning 6-4.READ MORE: Marshawn Lynch Addresses COVID Vaccine Hesitancy In Interview With 'Dr. Faucheezy'
Denver, who was wearing Dodgers clothing, was with his father, brother and two other people at the time. They had left the game in the eighth inning and had gone to a nearby bar, San Francisco police Chief Greg Suhr said at a news conference Thursday morning.
After exiting the bar, the group encountered a group of Giants fans and there was “a back-and-forth” about the teams’ rivalry, Suhr said.
A minor fight erupted but was quickly broken up, the chief said.
Suhr said that what happened next remains unclear, but that one of the groups followed the other group and a second altercation ensued minutes later, during which Denver was stabbed. He was taken to San Francisco General Hospital, where he died.
