On Saturday night in Washington DC, four people were shot outside a baseball stadium. Confirming the news, the police cited that there was ‘no ongoing threat’. Initially, the Metropolitan Police Department said it was responding to the incident in which two people were shot outside of National Park.
“Two additional victims associated with this incident walked into area hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds,” police said. The officials further mentioned that it was an active investigation and there was no ongoing threat. Sources revealed that one of the victims was an employee at the stadium.
The shooting halted the baseball game between Washington Nationals and the San Diego Padres. All the spectators were asked to exit the stadium in the US capital. More than a dozen shots were heard from outside the stadium, prompting some spectators to rush for the exits, while others ducked for cover near their seats.
The crowds attending the game were later ushered out of the stadium amid sirens from more than two dozen police cars, ambulances, and fire engines on the street outside the stadium. A police helicopter was also seen hovering overhead.
