A man was shot multiple times—in the shoulder and face—a few blocks from Nationals Park in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday morning, a Nationals spokesman said.
Police said the shooting took place at 10 a.m. ET. It was then, the team spokesman said, that the injured victim fled the scene and was located and treated by emergency personnel near the centerfield gate of the ballpark.
Levy Restaurants—the company that runs concessions inside the stadium—was holding a job fair during the shooting, though they did not believe the two were related.
Chelsea Janes of the The Washington Postreported that all people on the scene were sheltering in place, and that the order was lifted a short time after.
