Doctors are in the process of taking Bryan Stow, the Giants fan who was brutally beaten, out of his medically induced coma, media outlets are reporting.

Stow, 42, has been in a coma at a Los Angeles hospital since the March 31 incident where he was beaten outside Dodger stadium after the opener game between the Giants and the Dodgers. Stow was walking to his car when two men in Dodgers attire attacked him.

The young paramedic and father of two suffered a fractured skull and brain swelling. Doctors say he may have brain damage.

On Thursday, Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum announced he would kick in $25,000 for Stow's medical bills. Already, supporters have helped to raise $400,000 for his medical expenses, including $60,000 from the Dodgers.

Police are offering a $150,000 reward leading to the arrest of the two men.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
