***UPDATE*** Early reports state that four people have been shot outside of Nationals Park, one of the victims is believed to be a Nationals Park employee.

Reports of an active shooter outside of Nationals Park have been announced after several loud bangs were heard during the ongoing Nationals vs. Padres game.

The game is currently delayed at the bottom of the sixth. Players from both teams quickly rushed off the field, some going into the stands to reach out to family members in attendance Saturday evening. 

The Washington Nationals announced via Twitter that law enforcement responded to the scene after sounds of the alleged shooting alarmed fans present at the venue:

“A shooting has been reported outside of the Third Base Gate at Nationals Park. Fans are encouraged to exit the ballpark via the CF and RF gates at this time. We’re working with law enforcement to provide more information as soon as it becomes available.”

Early footage of Nationals Park shows hundreds of people in attendance running out of their seats as the P.A. warns them to remain seated as a safety measure.

The game has officially been postponed.

  1. 6 year old girl dead. I read some location details off a far right website, but don’t believe it… they are claiming it too place at the intersection of MLK and Malcolm X Avenues at a liquor store… Avenues don’t usually cross, so I call bullshit. Really sad stuff.

      • It definitely couldn’t have been one of the shit sites you follow. CNN, MSNBC. Be a they would never put out shit information. And the Charlottesville hoax was just that, a hoax. Read the transcript. Trump condemned neo nazis multiple times. But you never got to see it on your favorite channel bc they cut it out. Instead of being spoon fed what you want to hear you should seek out the truth from all over. You might even wake up and realize you’ve been lied to your whole life. You probably don’t hear this a lot but use your brain, think for yourself. It’s exhilarating.
        Good day.
