Man stabbed to death near San Francisco Giants' ballpark

Police: Deceased man was wearing Dodgers gear

SAN FRANCISCO - Police say a man fatally stabbed in a fight near San Francisco's AT&T Park after the Giants' 6-4 win over the Dodgers was a Dodgers fan and was wearing Dodgers gear.

Police Chief Greg Suhr disclosed the information to the San Francisco Chronicle. The Medical Examiner's office has identified the victim as 24-year-old Jonathan Denver.  Cameron Mullins, an investigator with the office, said authorities were still trying to determine the city Denver lived in.

It was not clear whether the victim's gear played a role in the Wednesday night attack. The Giants and Dodgers are longtime division rivals.

Police have released few additional details about the stabbing other than to say it occurred shortly after 11:30 p.m. during a confrontation between two groups of men.

Sgt. Danielle Newman said police have detained three people in the area and are interviewing witnesses, but have not made any arrests.
