night. apparently whatever the police gave his office about the events that took place wednesday night, just blocks from at&t park, led to the d.a. deciding there wasn't enough evidence to file charges against michael montgomery. we do know somebody stabbed jonathan denver to death during a fight that had started in a bar and moved to the street. and that fight was tied to the giants, dodgers rivalry. yesterday, police chief said one of the suspects in denver's death had implicated himself during questioning. 24 hours later, no one is in custody with montgomery being let out of jail. earlier in the day, the second suspect in the stabbing had been set free. there have been conflicting reports as to who was responsible for the fight and why it ended so violently. police did ask for people to come forward with information or any video they may have of what happened to help piece together this case. but as of right now, no one is in custody for the death of jonathan denver and it's not
clear if any charges will be in the case. michael montgomery was released a short time ago from jail. live in the newsroom, kpix5. >> now people in fort bragg were the victim, jonathan denver lived are trying to cope with his death. joe vasquez is there. >> from what i understand, they were not the aggressors. >> jordan talked to some of the guys in the fight. >> the folks are saying it was self-defense. what are you hearing from the guys involved in. >> i am hearing the people from lodi with the ones that started the fight. >> what were they saying? >> they were just bad mouthing the dodgers colors and stuff like that. >> you were beaten up. >> my friend was beat up as well. >> what did they do to him? >> he had a black eye and stitches under his eye and he looks pretty bad. >> what did he say happened? >> he was knocked out cold. he doesn't remember a whole

risk. as the crime rate in oakland rises, one city councilman has an idea to help lower it, but he's getting resistance. not only from some who live there, but also from fellow council people. kpix5 on the unpopular proposal to keep kids off the streets at night. >> our kids need to be at home. >> not roaming the streets of oakland night after night. that's what councilman noelle believes he proposed a curfew on, he says would keep young people off the street. >> anyone under 18 years of age, you need to be off the streets by 10:00. >> and in class or accompanied by an adult during school hours. a proposal so contention that signs are going up in his district, showing the councilman with a swastika superimposed on his forehead. it's the work he believes of a vicious and vocal minority who he believes is pushing city council members around. >> some get intimidated.
