LOS ANGELES (AP) -- A law enforcement official says the man accused in the attack on a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium may be a suspect in a Nevada shooting.

The official, with knowledge of the probe into the March 31 beating of Bryan Stow, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that Henderson police are looking at Giovanni Ramirez as a possible suspect in a January attempted murder outside Las Vegas. The official requested anonymity because the beating investigation is ongoing.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said, however, there were no open warrants or charges filed against Ramirez in the city.

Ramirez was arrested May 22 following an intensive investigation into the beating outside Dodger Stadium.

Ramirez's attorney, Jose Romero, says his client was never at the stadium that day.
