Stabbing in Dodger Stadium parking lot after home opener

A wondrous day at Dodger Stadium has taking an ugly turn. Andrew Blankstein of The Times is reporting a postgame stabbing:

The Dodgers home opener against the San Francisco Giants was marred by violence Monday afternoon when a man was stabbed multiple times after getting into an argument with several men in a pickup truck, Los Angeles police said.

The stabbing was reported at 5:43 p.m. in parking lot 6 at Dodger Stadium, said Officer Karen Rayner. The victim, who was not immediately identified, was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in serious condition.

Police are searching for the assailant, who fled with two others in a black pickup truck, Rayner said.

"Officers have a good description of the vehicle and the suspects, and we expect to make arrests," she said.

About the same time, police received a report of a man with a gun in parking lot 4. Rayner said police later determined that the man had been vandalizing cars and was unarmed. He fled before officers arrived. ...

At the risk of overreacting to this, it's starting to feel as if there's no shelter.

This is terrible. I live in San Diego and go to a bunch of Padre games for fun, and when the Dodgers come to town, there's always risk of fights and knives. Dodger fans can be a rowdy bunch.

It's not officially the start of baseball season until someone gets stabbed at a Dodger game....

Terrible news. I hope they catch the d-bag.

I've been there before. I felt safe, but it was the Reds playing out there. Seems like there are some nasty NL west rivalries that some people just can't keep between the lines.

That's funny. I figured it would've taken place in the 3rd inning when most of the Dodgers fans are still in the lot.

Probably just Manny being Manny.
