At least four people were injured in a shooting outside Nationals Park in Washington, DC during a home game with the San Diego Padres on Saturday night.
After about 15 minutes DC police tweeted “Two additional victims associated with the incident have set foot in a local hospital to treat gunshot wounds,” the agency said, saying the two were shot dead.
Some fans said it sounded like fireworks in the 6th inning.
Arman Ramnath, 27, from Arlington, Virginia, said: Associated Press He was sitting on the stand when he heard a loud pop on his side of the stadium.
“I didn’t know what it was, and then everyone started ducking,” he said.
He wanted to hide behind their seats, like many in the stadium. The crowd began to leave before the announcement reached the speakers instructing the fans to stay in the park. After a few minutes, people were allowed to leave.
It is unknown if the shooter is in custody.
Police said the game was interrupted as it was investigating the case. The game is set to resume on Sunday afternoon.
