Two People Are Shot at Chicago White Sox Baseball Game


Two people were shot at Guaranteed Rate Field Stadium in Chicago during a Major League Baseball game on Friday night, officials said.

The shooting occurred inside the stadium during a game between the Chicago White Sox and the Oakland Athletics, according to Tom Ahern, a spokesman for the Chicago Police Department.

The authorities did not provide further details, but local news outlets reported that the shooting did not interrupt Friday night’s game. A concert headlined by Vanilla Ice scheduled for after the game was canceled, according to local news reports. The scoreboard above center field said the cancellation was “due to technical issues.”

A fan at the game named Tom Miller told ABC 7 Chicago that he was sitting two rows behind where the shooting occurred and saw a woman bleeding from the leg, but did not see or hear what happened. Security then ushered at least two people out of their seats, he added.

A news conference on the shooting was scheduled by authorities late Friday night.
