Police: Dodgers fan shot by San Francisco Giants fan after game



LOS ANGELES -- A Los Angeles Dodgers fan was shot and killed by a San Francisco Giants fan following a dispute in the parking lot after a game, police said.

Mark Antenorcruz, 25, of Covina, was shot once in the upper body about 10 p.m. Friday as he headed for his car, police and county coroner's Lt. Gary Kellerman said. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The NL League West champion Giants had just won 6-4 Friday night and people were leaving Dodger Stadium when a group of San Francisco fans jeered Antenorcruz, who may have given a reply, police said.

The gunman fled after the shooting. Police detectives searched the 16,000-car parking lot in the stadium complex north of downtown for hours but made no arrests. Authorities did not immediately release a description of a suspect or his car.

Neither baseball team commented on the deadly shooting.

The Giants clinched the NL West on Wednesday. Friday's loss, meanwhile, dropped the Dodgers three games behind Philadelphia in the NL wild-card race.
