Cardinals Statement on Incident

The St. Louis Cardinals have issued the following statement in regards to a fan injury last night, which appears to have been the result of a stray bullet fired near Busch Stadium.

“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.”

According to a report in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the police received a phone call for shots fired near 14th Street and Chouteau Avenue close to the time the female fan was struck. It is believed that a bullet, which was found near her seat in the ballpark, was the result of those shots being fired into the air.
