The SFPD is on the hunt for two suspects who were part of a four-man group of Giants fans who attacked two Dodgers fans after the game at AT&T Park on Wednesday night, leading to the fatal stabbing of 24-year-old Jonathan Denver. Two men, ages 18 and 21, are already in custody and one is thought to have been the knife-holder, but the weapon remains missing.
Police Chief Greg Suhr gave a new conference yesterday saying that the department is seeking video, either from cell phones of bystanders or surveillance from businesses in the area of Third and Harrison, to help identify their two remaining suspects. They believe they know the full name of one, and only have a first name of the other. Call homicide at 415-553-1146 if you have any such video.
Initial reports said there were 10 people involved in a fight near the intersection, but the police have now focused in on this group of four individuals who may have first exchanged words with the victim and his friend.
Denver was an apprentice plumber working up in Fort Bragg, and he attended the game with his dad and a friend. He was described as a longtime, die-hard Dodgers fan, and he had had two recent alcohol-related arrests, one a drunk-in-public arrest at the county fair in Mendocino this month.
Sports rivalries, people, are supposed to be fun. This is just goddamn moronic and awful.
