Three wounded, Padres game suspended

Saturday night’s game between the San Diego Padres and Washington Nationals was suspended after a shooting outside Nationals Park, the team announced. 

The shooting occurred outside the third base gate, the team and D.C. Metro Police said, halting play in the sixth inning and leading to moments of panic inside and outside the stadium. 

Three people were wounded in the shooting, according to the MPD, and gunshots were audible from within Nationals Park, sowing confusion among fans, players and stadium employees. 

After the gunshots rang out, players from the Padres summoned family members into their dugout to shelter in the stadium’s lowest level. The shooting also prompted fans to take cover within the stadium, according to multiple eyewitness accounts posted to social media.
