Chaos erupted during Saturday night’s baseball game at Nationals Park after gunshots were heard outside the Washington, DC, stadium.
The DC Police Department said on Twitter that two people had been shot outside the ballpark, adding there was “no ongoing threat.”
“As a result of the shooting incident, tonight’s @Nationals game has been suspended,” cops wrote.
Several loud pops were heard from the far left field just as the San Diego Padres had taken the field for the bottom of the sixth inning.
Fans could be seen taking cover under their seats as helicopters circled the ballpark, footage tweeted by WBRZ-TV reporter Dana DiPiazza showed.
Police sirens blared as several in the crowd began to stream out of the ballpark.
Footage taken from a nearby rooftop showed a frantic mass evacuation of the stadium, which is in the city’s Capitol Riverfront neighborhood.
The home team confirmed reports of a shooting outside the Third Base Gate.
