Four people were shot on Saturday outside of the Washington Nationals park outside of the third base gate southbound on South Capitol. 

Fans could hear the shots during the seventh inning and were initially told to stay at their seats as it was "incident" outside but eventually they were told to exit as emergency crews began to work the scene. 

Police confirmed the two victims in the beginning, one being a woman that was treated at the scene. Police announced that two additional victims arrived at the hospital. The condition of the other victims are unknown at this time.

According to Sam Fortier of the Washington Post, the incident was a driveby shooting and the victims car could be spotted outside of the stadium.
