What security measures should be taken at games?

A man wearing a Los Angeles Dodgers hat was stabbed to death in San Francisco after a Giants-Dodgers game at the AT&T Park.

Details are scant. But police said a fight broke out  between a group of Dodgers and Giants fans a few blocks from the ballpark. The victim, 24-year-old Jonathan Denver, was stabbed at 11:30pm, about 90 minutes after the game ended.

Two men, ages 21 and 18, were arrested.

The Dodgers and Giants are longtime rivals. Stadium security in Los Angeles and San Francisco has been ramped up since another episode of violence between fans of the two teams in 2011, when Giants fan Bryan Stow was severely beaten in the parking lot of the Dodger Stadium.

San Francisco Police Department asks for tipsters regarding this crime to call: 415-553-1146
