Padres recall sad scene after shots outside National Park

When gunshots began to reverberate around National Park, San Diego Padres star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. immediately thought of family members of the team and friends in the seats.

Tatis plopped down the left field line off the bench on Saturday night, helped open a gate to the stands and began leading a group back into the dugout for shelter.

“Our family, loved ones, small children. Feel like someone needs to pick them up,” Tatis said on Sunday. “I think the safest place was the clubhouse and we were trying to get our families to a safer place.”

The game between the Padres and the Washington Nationals ended in the top half of the sixth inning in front of about 33,000 fans when several shots were heard on South Capitol Street outside the third-base side of the stadium.

But at the time, no one knew whether the fast series of shots was coming from inside the ballpark or beyond.

“It doesn’t make the situation better, but the person shooting the firearm at the stadium would have been in a completely different situation,” said longtime Nationals star Ryan Zimmerman.

According to Ashan Benedict, acting assistant police chief of the Metropolitan Police Department, three people were injured in a shootout between people in two cars.

According to a police report, a woman participating in the game was waiting for an Uber outside the park when she was gunned down. Police officials said there were injury marks on his back.

Police said the condition of the other two people who were injured in the bullet injuries was stable.

Padres manager Jayce Tingler was on his way to see plate umpire Jordan Baker about a pitching change in a game San Diego led 8-4 when the shooting resumed.
