DC Police Find Second Car From Shooting Near Nationals Park


The Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) said it has found the second vehicle involved in Saturday night’s shooting that injured three people outside Nationals Park.

The owner of the gray Toyota Corolla reportedly claimed that the car was borrowed by an individual who did not return it, according to officials. Officers located the car in Georgetown, Northwest DC.

The investigation is still going on and the vehicle is being forensically analyzed, but DC police have not made any new arrests yet.

The shooting took place during a Washington Nationals game against the San Diego Padres outside Nationals Park, causing a panic among players and fans. The game was canceled because of the incident.

At around 9:30 pm on July 17, shots were fired between two vehicles near the Third Base Gate at Nationals Park, resulting in the wounding of three adults.

One of the victims was a woman who was caught in the crossfire after attending the game.

“As you all know, this is not just us,” said Washington Nationals Manager Davey Martinez after the shooting. “It’s happening everywhere… I love this city. This city is my home. It can get crazy. We all know that and we all want to feel safe. I can tell you that inside this ballpark I feel safer than ever. I really do. We care about each other, we don’t want anybody getting hurt. For me yesterday, I tried to protect as many people as possible.”
