The Los Angeles Police Department has arrested two men suspected of beating San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow into a coma on Opening Day outside Dodger Stadium.
The LAPD had already made an arrest in connection with the attack, taking Giovanni Ramirez into custody on May 22, but after initially being named the prime suspect in the case, Ramirez is apparently no longer a suspect. An official speaking on the case claimed that Ramirez will likely be exonerated for the Stow beating.
Andrew Neiman, an LAPD spokesman said the Stow investigation is ongoing.
Ramirez is a convicted felon and will remain in custody on an unrelated parole violation after police found a gun in the house he was staying in when he was arrested. His lawyers contend that he was not even at Dodger Stadium at the time of the attack.
The names of the two suspects now in custody have not been released but we will update you as more news comes.
Stow suffered brain damage as a result of the March 31 attack and has been in a coma ever since. He underwent emergency brain surgery earlier this week after suffering a seizure on Monday. He is still in serious condition.
