A fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team has been stabbed to death in a fight with a supporter of the San Francisco Giants, police have confirmed.
The latest incident between the two sets of supporters follows an attack on Giants fan Bryan Stow, who was left brain damaged after being badly beaten in the parking lot at Dodger Stadium two years ago.
Police revealed that Jonathan Denver, the 24-year-old son of a Dodgers security guard, from Fort Bragg, California, was attacked a few blocks of the AT&T Park in San Francisco.
The incident occurred just over an hour after the the Dodgers had been beaten 6-4 by the Giants.
"The Dodgers are shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Jonathan Denver," read a post on the Dodgers' official Facebook page.
"There is no rational explanation for this senseless act which resulted in Jonathan's death.
"The pain that this has caused his family and friends is unimaginable."
Police have arrested a man in connection with Denver's death.
