During last night's Brewers vs Cardinals game in St. Louis, a female fan was struck by a stray bullet while sitting at her seat inside Busch stadium.
According to the police report, the woman, who was seated near the dugout, felt pain in her arm and noticed a small abrasion above her elbow when she removed her jacket. She went to a first aid station for treatment where she was treated for "minor injuries," and contacted an off-duty police officer.
Police also said they found a bullet slug "in the immediate area around the victim's seat."
According to STL Today, there had been a call for shots fired at an intersection less than a mile from the ballpark, and authorities believe the bullet that grazed the fan may have come from someone shooting in the air.
The Cardinals released the following statement today.
"We are aware of an incident last night in which a fan reported being struck by a stray bullet that presumably originated from outside of the stadium. The fan was treated for an abrasion and a bruise on her arm at First Aid and released. She was interviewed by police who are investigating the matter. There is nothing more important than the safety of our fans, and the Cardinals are grateful that no one was seriously injured. We will be sharing more information with the media as further details emerge."
