An 18-year-old San Carlos man remained jailed on $1 million bail Sunday following the death of another youth with whom he got into a fight near AT&T Park.
Police Sgt. Neville Gittens said Taylor Buckley turned himself into police on Saturday night after the 18-year-old Redwood City man died at a hospital earlier in the day. Gittens said the teenager fell and struck his head on the ground after being punched Friday night at a plaza adjacent to McCovey Cove that is not part of the ballpark.
The victim, Anthony Giraudo, was a longtime Giants fan who often used his family’s season tickets, reported the San Francisco Chronicle. According to the paper, Giraudo graduated last year from Woodside High School and attended Cañada College in Redwood City, where he pitched on the baseball team.
The Philadelphia Phillies-San Francisco Giants game was under way, but it was not yet known if the two, who did not know each other, had attended it before the altercation, according to Gittens.
Buckley was arrested just after the fight on suspicion of aggravated assault, but posted bail and was released, Gittens said. A murder warrant was put out for his arrest after the other teen died, he said.
