Two of the three victims of Saturday night's violent fan outburst at Candlestick Park were upgraded Monday from serious to fair condition, according to San Francisco General Hospital spokesperson Rachael Kagan.

A 26-year-old male from Santa Rosa, the victim of an assault, has been upgraded to "fair." A male, 25, gunshot victim, also has been upgraded to "fair."

A third victim at the 49ers-Raiders exhibition game, a 20-year-old male who was shot in the face, sustained only a superficial wound, according to police.

The next update will be issued Tuesday morning. The names of the victims have not been released.

The most seriously injured shooting victim was apparently a Raiders fan. He suffered life threatening injuries after someone shot him several times apparently for wearing a shirt that had an obscenity directed at the 49ers.

No arrests have been made, but SFPD said it has detained a person of interest in one of the shootings. In the beating, police are seeking a male suspect described as a Samoan or Pacific Island man between 25 and 30 years of age, with a goatee and long curly hair tied up in a pony tail, weighing up to 260 pounds and standing almost 6-feet-5 inches tall.

Various accounts put the number of large-scale fights Saturday night at three. The two shootings and the assault did not take place in the stands. Both shootings occurred in the parking lot after the game and the assault occurred in a bathroom inside the stadium during the fourth quarter.

The attacks come four-and-a-half months after Giants fan Bryan Stow was severely beaten by two men outside Dodger Stadium, following the season opener on March 31.
