As we reported today, Jonathan Denver, 24, was fatally stabbed near Third and Harrison in SoMa just after Wednesday's game. The Giants released the following statement in the wake of his death.
We were deeply saddened to learn of last night's horrific incident that occurred several blocks from the ballpark and resulted in the tragic death of 24-year old Jonathan Denver. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family during this difficult time.
While details are still emerging, we want to be clear that there is absolutely no place in our community for this type of senseless violence.
The Giants are working with the San Francisco Police Department to step up enforcement in and around the ballpark tonight and throughout the rest of this final home stand. We will also observe a moment of silence in memory of Mr. Denver before tonight's game.
The Chronicle has more about the events leading up to last night's stabbing death.
The trouble started as Denver and the other Dodgers fans left the bar and encountered the suspects, at least one of whom was wearing a Giants cap, Suhr said. The two groups exchanged words about the Giants-Dodgers rivalry, and the back and forth "deteriorated into a fight," the chief said.
The fight broke up, but a few minutes later the two groups crossed paths again, Suhr said. More fighting broke out, and Denver was stabbed.
Two unidentified men, ages 21 and 18, have been arrested. One of the men in custody is suspected of stabbing Denver.
