" Ramirez, who terrorized Californians north and south during a 1980s killing rampage, was identified for the first time in San Francisco, recalled Suhr, who worked on the San Francisco Police Department task force investigating the crimes at the time.

San Francisco Police Chief Greg Suhr late Thursday morning offered details of the confrontation that led to the fatal stabbing of a 24-year-old Dodgers fan -- the second tragedy in recent years in the storied rivalry between the L.A. team and the Giants. The stabbing death of 24-year-old Jonathan Denver appears more complicated than the 2011 brutal beating outside Dodger Stadium that left Giants fan Bryan Stow with severe brain damage. Denver, his father, his father's girlfriend, his brother and a friend left Wednesday's game during the 8th inning and went to a nearby bar, Suhr said.

To be an aspiring superhero these days, most 5-year-olds must enlist clueless younger siblings, restless parents, backyard shrubs, fire hydrants and all manner of pets to serve as their foils and damsels in distress. Not Miles Scott, for whom much of San Francisco morphed into Gotham City on Friday. He pulled a woman from the cable car tracks as crowds cheered, then busted the Riddler during a bank heist. The Gotham City Chronicle ran a banner headline: BATKID SAVES CITY. Miles has had acute lymphoblastic leukemia since he was 20 months old. His cancer went into remission and, with his last round of chemotherapy in June, he said he wanted to be Batman.

The Dodgers fan fatally stabbed after a game in San Francisco was the son of a security guard who worked for the team, officials confirmed Thursday. In a statement issued Thursday afternoon, the Dodgers said they were "shocked and saddened" to learn of Jonathan Denver's death. They called him "the son of one of our security guards.” “There is no rational explanation for this senseless act which resulted in Jonathan's death," the statement continued. "The pain that this has caused his family and friends is unimaginable.  Words are not enough to describe our sadness.  Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family during this extremely difficult time.” RELATED: Bryan Stow's family calls Dodger fan's death 'senseless' Denver, who lived in Fort Bragg, Calif., and his brother met their father in San Francisco to watch the Dodgers play the Giants on Wednesday, friends said.

LONDON -- Jennifer Suhr's coach sent her off to the track Monday with a few words of encouragement. "You're going to win," he said. Yeah, yeah, coaches say that all the time. But not this one, not when her coach also is her husband, not when the relationship is so charged with intensity that he never would dare pile expectations atop pressure. Until Monday, that is. Rick Suhr could feel a gold medal coming, so much so that he started crying in anticipation on the flight from the United States.

LONDON - Rain began falling on Olympic Stadium as Felix Sanchez accepted his gold medal for the 400-meter hurdles, and he knew the droplets were no mere quirk of English summer weather. Eight years after he became a champion at the Athens Olympics, four years after he vowed but failed to win a medal in honor of his late grandmother, he was on top of the world again and in the same time - 47.63 seconds - that he clocked in Athens. He had pinned his abuela's picture beneath his bib, and when raindrops began to kiss his face he was sure she had sent them and he sobbed uncontrollably.

EUGENE, Ore. - Jenn Suhr's pole vaulting career has taken off since she won the silver medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, but her training situation remains grounded. Suhr, known as Jenn Stuczynski before she married her coach, Rick Suhr , still trains in a cramped airplane hangar behind her home near Rochester, N.Y. Suhr has come close to hitting the hangar's ceiling in practice several times, but she didn't have to soar quite that high at Hayward Field on Sunday to triumph at the U.S. Olympic track and field trials and win a berth at the London Games.
