Police are investing after a female fan attending Tuesday night’s game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium was grazed in the arm by a bullet.
According to police, the 34 year-old victim felt a pain in her arm and went to the first aid station where employees notified an officer. A bullet was later found in the area where the woman was seated.
The Cardinals issued the following statement on 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.
TSt. Louis and Milwaukee have two games left in their current series.
