Chaos erupted during Saturday night’s baseball game at Nationals Park after reports of an active shooter outside the Washington, DC, stadium.
Police sirens and helicopters could be seen around the park as the crowd attending the faceoff between the Washington Nationals and the San Diego Padres was told to leave and then stay put inside the stadium.
Footage from inside shows the chaos as fans ran while others had no clue what was going on. Police could be seen armed and ready with big guns.
“Fans are encouraged to exit the ballpark via the CF and RF gates at this time,” the team tweeted at 9:47 p.m.
“We’re working with law enforcement to provide more information as soon as it becomes available.”
The game has since been suspended in the sixth inning with San Diego leading the Nats 8-4.
