Nationals-Padres Game Halted After Three People Wounded In Shooting Outside Park

Saturday’s baseball game between the Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres was postponed after shots rang out. At least three people were injured in the shooting outside National Park.

The shots were fired outside the third base gate during the sixth inning. D.C. Metro Police said that the gunshots could be heard throughout the park, causing temporary panic both inside and outside the park. Shortly after, a public-address announcement was made asking everyone to remain inside the ballpark before eventually asking fans to leave through the center gates.

It was initially reported that four people were brought to area hospitals for treatment; however, the total was later updated to three victims. All three of the victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries.

The game was postponed following the shooting and has been rescheduled to Sunday. The game will resume before Sunday’s scheduled game, which will begin immediately after the makeup game. The Padres were leading 8-4 before the game was stopped.

MPD said the investigation is still ongoing, but they do not believe that there is any additional threat at this time.
