The victim stated she was at her seat inside the stadium when she felt pain to her arm and after removing her jacket, noticed a small abrasion above her elbow. The victim responded to a first aid station, who contacted an officer working secondary employment at the baseball game. A bullet slug was located in the immediate area around the victim’s seat. It appears the bullet came from outside the stadium, however the investigation is ongoing.Stay safe out there, people.
This further amplifies our yearly message of encouraging “Fun Without Guns”. We know “what goes up must come down”, and in this case, an innocent victim was struck. The department constantly stresses the importance of safety and responsible gun ownership.
