Two Victims In Candlestick Park Attacks Improving

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Officials say the two men who were the most seriously injured in a series of attacks after a football game at San Francisco’s Candlestick Park are making a steady recovery at the hospital.

   San Francisco General Hospital representatives said Monday both victims have been upgraded to fair condition.

   Police say violence broke out among fans during and after a preseason game between the rival San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders on Saturday.

   After the game, a 24-year-old man was shot several times in the stomach in a stadium parking lot and hospitalized in critical condition. He was one of those upgraded to fair condition.

   The other was a 26-year-old man who was beaten unconscious in a stadium restroom. He initially was hospitalized in serious condition.

   Police have not made any arrests.
