    The celebration in San Francisco's streets following the Giants' World Series victory started off peaceful but quickly turned raucous and violent, as revelers vandalized police cars and businesses and pelted officers with bottles. Mark Matthews reports. (Published Thursday, Oct 30, 2014)

    A body found floating in a pond at or near Sharp Park Golf Course  in Pacifica today is being investigated as a suspicious death, San Mateo  County Coroner Robert Foucrault said.

    Foucrault said the body was reported to him shortly after noon.

    Greg Ritschy, a golf professional at the course, said he did not  know who had alerted authorities to the discovery but said a golfer had told  him she saw police cars at the northwest corner of the golf course.

    Ritschy said around 1:45 p.m. the police activity is happening on  the ocean side of the golf course, about a half-mile from the clubhouse.

    He said the golf course remains open this afternoon and golfers'  play has not been affected.
