There was a scary moment in the stands Tuesday night as the Cardinals beat the Brewers (STL 2, MIL 1) at Busch Stadium. A woman attending the game was grazed by a stray bullet, though thankfully she escaped with minor injuries.
The Cardinals released the following statement Wednesday:
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.
St. Louis police told Christine Byers of the St. Louis Post Dispatch there had been a call for shots fired at an intersection less than a mile from the ballpark. They believe the bullet may have come from someone shooting in the air.
