Dodgers fan killed near AT&T Park

San Francisco GiantsThe violent rivalry between Los Angeles Dodgers and San Francisco Giants fans continues, with a Dodgers fan allegedly killed by a Giants fan after last night’s game at AT&T Park.

The details are still a little sketchy, but Jonathan Denver, 24 was wearing Dodgers gear after attending the Dodgers-Giants game. Police confirmed an altercation between fans of both teams. This is not the first time fans of the two teams have ended up in a fight; in 2011 Giants fan Bryan Stow was severely beaten in the Dodger Stadium parking lot after the Dodgers-Giants season opener.

From the San Francisco Chronicle:

Jonathan Denver, 24, who worked as a plumber’s apprentice in Fort Bragg (Mendocino County), was stabbed near Third and Harrison streets about 11:30 p.m. Wednesday, less than 90 minutes after the game ended at the ballpark a few blocks to the south, police said….

Officers responded to reports that 10 people, including both Dodgers and Giants fans, were involved in a fight, with one man armed with a knife and a second man armed with a bat. Further details of how the confrontation occurred have not been released….

Suhr confirmed that Denver was wearing Dodgers gear Wednesday night.

More details are expected to be released by San Francisco authorities in coming days. The Giants, meanwhile, is considering additional security for tonight’s rematch.
