Man stabbed to death after Dodgers-Giants game in San Francisco

One man was stabbed to death during a fight, reportedly between Dodgers and Giants fans near AT&T Park in San Francisco on Wednesday night.

San Francisco police gave few details, but said the slaying happened at 3rd and Harrison streets about four blocks from the stadium and about 90 minutes after the Giants beat the Dodgers, 6-4.

The unidentified victim was with his brother and father who were wearing Dodger blue when he was stabbed, NBC-Bay Area reported. The argument began after a comment about Dodgers apparel, KGO-TV reported.

The victim was not wearing team colors, according to media reports. It was not immediately clear if others in the fight were wearing Giants gear.


Police declined to comment on a possible motive for the fight.

Three suspects have been detained, said San Francisco police Sgt. Danielle Newman. The stabbing victim was rushed to San Francisco General Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives are interviewing witnesses as the investigation continues, Newman said. One of the suspects had blood on his shirt, according to KGO-TV.

The Dodgers and Giants have a rivalry going back generations. In 2011, it turned violent when Giants fan Bryan Stow was severely beaten in the parking lot of Dodger Stadium. Two suspects are in custody, charged with the beating.


Stow suffered brain damage and is still recovering.
