SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The Los Angeles Dodgers say the 24-year-old man who was fatally stabbed during a postgame confrontation in San Francisco was the son of one of the team's security guards.
Spokesman Jared Kaufer said Thursday that Jonathan Winters' father worked security at Dodger Stadium.
San Francisco police say Winters was walking with his father, brother and two other people not far from the San Francisco Giants' ballpark Wednesday night when their group exchanged words with some Giants fans who were leaving a nightclub.
The exchange turned physical and Winters, who was wearing Dodger gear, was stabbed to death.
Denver attended the game with his relatives but left in the eighth inning of what turned out to be a 6-4 Giants victory. His attackers did not attend the game.
Police Chief Greg Suhr says two people are in custody and one of them is facing face homicide charges.
