Los Angeles police are not the only ones interested in Giovanni Ramirez, the 31-year-old suspect accused of beating Giants fan Bryan Stow in March.

Police arrested Ramirez last week after an intense investigation, saying he was the prime aggressor in the March 31 beating outside Dodger Stadium. Although Ramirez claims he has an alibi -- his 10-year-old daughter, whom he was babysitting that evening -- police insist they have the right man.

Incidentally, detectives in Henderson, Nevada, are also looking for Ramirez in connection with a gang shooting, according to media outlets

According to LA Weekly, our sister paper, Ramirez is wanted in an attempted murder that may have been retaliation for the 2006 killing of his daughter. In that incident, Ramirez was reportedly wearing a blue Dodgers cap.

Henderson police would not confirm this information, which was obtained through police reports, yet LAPD Chief Charlie Beck told LA Weekly "it

would not be false" to report that Ramirez had problems in another


Meanwhile, Ramirez's lawyers are mounting his defense, already stacking more than 10 witnesses who they say can confirm he was not at the baseball game the day Stow was beaten into a coma.

  • 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.'"
