Fans at Washington Nationals game take cover after shooting reported outside stadium

CA, 18 Jul 2021
A game between the San Diego Padres and the Washington Nationals was suspended in the sixth inning on Saturday night after gunfire rang out outside Nationals Park.

The gunfire could be heard inside the stadium prompting some fans to duck for cover as an announcement asked fans to stay inside the stadium.

The shooting reportedly took place between two vehicles and police said three people were injured in the incident.

"I just want to assure the public that at no time during this incident were individuals inside the stadium attending the game in any type of danger. This was not an active shooter incident and is not being investigated as such. Everything took place outside the stadium," Executive Assistant Chief of Police Ashan Benedict of the Metropolitan police department said during a briefing.
