Two people were arrested Thursday hours after a 24-year-old plumbing apprentice was stabbed to death after a fight broke out near AT&T Park following the San Francisco Giants defeat of the Los Angeles Dodgers.

One of those suspects, 21-year-old Michael Montgomery of Lodi, was charged with homicide according to San Francisco Police Department.

San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr said at a news conference that two suspects are still outstanding following the stabbing of Jonathan Denver, a plumbing apprentice in Fort Bragg who was in San Francisco with his family to root on the Dodgers. He was killed at 11:49 p.m. four blocks from the park and 90 minutes after the game. Suhr not identify those in custody.

While the suspects were not at the baseball game - they were at a nearby nightclub - there was some sort of "Dodgers-Giants" comments made between the two groups. A fight broke out. The two groups parted. Moments later, a second fight erupted at Third and Harrison streets, Suhr said, which is when Denver was stabbed. One of the suspects was wearing a Giants hat. Denver, his brother and father - who lives in Alhambra - were all wearing Dodgers blue.
