Panic-stricken baseball fans began to flee the DC stadium after people in two cars opened fire on each other outside, sending three people to hospital.
Panic-stricken baseball fans were sent running for cover after gunshots were fired outside Nationals Park in Washington DC around 9.30 pm on Saturday.
Fans were seen frantically trying to get out of the stands as some spilled onto the field in the middle of the sixth inning in Saturday's game against the San Diego Padres.
"It was just a chaotic scene," umpire crew chief Mark Carlson told the Associated Press.
"We heard what sounded like rapid gunfire. We didn't know where it was coming from."
Police say at least three people were injured in the shooting, including one innocent bystander who was hit as people in two cars fired at each other outside of the park's third base gate.
