Washington(NewsNation Now) — A shooting near a national park in Washington, DC injured several people on Saturday night.
At least four people were treated for bullet injuries, police said.
The San Diego Padres had just stolen the field in the bottom of the sixth inning when they heard some loud pops from the left fielder side of the stadium.
Fans sitting in the left field soon began to move out of the center fielder. After a while, the fans on the first base side began to leave their seats vigorously. Some fans flocked to the Padres on the third base for safety as they heard sirens from outside the park.
The Nationals then announced that the incident had occurred outside the stadium and posted a message on the scoreboard telling fans to stay inside the stadium.
A few minutes later, the Nationals tweeted. “A shooting was reported outside the third base gate of Nationals Park,” the team said. “At this time, fans are encouraged to leave the stadium via CF and RF gates. We are working with law enforcement agencies to provide more information as it becomes available.”
police Said The game has been interrupted and investigations are underway, but there appear to be no ongoing threats.
