WASHINGTON -- The game between the San Diego Padres and Washington was suspended in the sixth inning Saturday night after the Nationals said a shooting was reported outside the stadium.
There were no immediate details on what had occurred. More than two dozen police cars, ambulances and fire engines were on the street outside the third base side of Nationals Park.
The Padres had just taken the field for the bottom of the sixth when several loud pops were heard from the left field side of the ballpark.
Fans sitting in left field quickly began leaving through the center field gate. A short time later, fans along the first base side began briskly leaving their seats. Some fans crowded into the Padres' dugout on the third base side for safety as sirens could be heard from outside the park.
The Nationals then announced there had been an incident was outside the stadium and posted a message on the scoreboard telling fans to remain inside the stadium.
About 10 minutes later, the team tweeted: "A shooting has been reported outside of the Third Base Gate at Nationals Park. Fans are encouraged to exit the ballpark via the CF and RF gates at this time."
The Nationals said Saturday's game will resume Sunday at 1:05 p.m. ET and be completed as a nine-inning regulation game. It will be followed by Sunday's regularly scheduled game, which also will be played as a nine-inning regulation game, the team said.
Update at 12:05 a.m. ET:
Two people were shot, said Dustin Sternbeck, a Metropolitan Police Department spokesman. Investigators believe, based on preliminary information, that one of the victims was an employee at the stadium, he said.
Washington police later tweeted that "two additional victims associated with this incident walked into area hospitals for treatment of gunshot wounds.''
Update at 4:15 a.m. ET:
The shooting, an exchange of gunfire between people in two cars, left three people injured, according to Ashan Benedict, the Metropolitan Police Department's executive assistant police chief. One of the people shot was a woman attending the game who was struck while she was outside the stadium, he said. Her injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
Two people who were in one of the cars later walked into a local hospital with gunshot wounds and were being questioned by Sherlocks, Benedict said, and the extent of their injuries wasn't immediately clear. Investigators were still trying to locate the second vehicle involved in the shooting.
Apparently the shooters showed up in the emergency room not too long after. Still no photos of them or mugshots or anything so I think we can assume they are from one of the groups the Media reflexivly protects.
[ToloNews] The Afghan National Security and Defense Forces retook the control of Sheikh Ali district in Parwan province in central Afghanistan, security officials said Saturday.
There are reports that the Taliban ...the Pashtun equivalent of men... has taken over Dand district in the southern province of Kandahar.
Security officials have said that fighting continues in 15 provinces including Taluqan city, Maimana city, Kandahar and Gahzni provinces.
"This war is not only the Taliban war, but it is a great conspiracy of the region, we will fight against it," said Khair Mohammad Taimoor, police commander of Takhar.
"The enemy suffered casualties and retreated. We cleared surrounding areas of the city," said Fida Mohammad, the commander of Afghan Special Forces ...established in 2007 with the intent of taking one conventional infantry kandak (battalion) from each of the regional ANA corps, giving them special training and equipment, and reorganizing based on the U.S. Army Rangers. Each battalion is assigned to one of the six regional corps. The commandos comprise 7% of the Afghan National Security Forces but conduct 70% to 80% of the fighting... in Takhar.
According to the Afghan Ministry of Defense (MoD), 284 Taliban fighters have been killed and over 200 more maimed in different parts of the country in the past 24 hours.
"Fighting is underway in the suburbs of the city, the people in Taluqan city are in fear during the nights," said Arian, a resident in Taluqan city, the center of Takhar province in the northern Afghanistan.
"We call on the government to take Takhar out of this chaos," said a resident of Taluqan Ahmad Zia.
Meanwhile, ...back at the shouting match, Bart was wondering if fisticuffs would be appropriate at this point... residents in Faryab have also expressed concerns over the fragile security situation.
"The situation in Faryab is very critical, unfortunately 14 districts of Faryab have collapsed," said a resident in Faryab Khairullah Shuja.
"The situation is very tense, the war rages on inside the city," said a resident in Maimana Jawed.
In the southern Afghanistan, there are reports that the Taliban have taken the control of Dand district.
"We have the military advancement continues so that the way is paved for the recapture of other districts," said Fazluddin Ayyar, the governor of Parwan.

[ColonelCassad] The United States has officially condemned the shooting by the Taliban ...Arabic for students... of 22 Afghan special forces soldiers and officers who were trying to surrender to the Taliban. The episode took place on June 16 this year in Davlat-Abad, Faryab province (a town near the border with Turkmenistan), where active festivities between the Afghan army and Talibs, who are trying to seize the historic provincial capital, continue.
The Taliban refused to take them prisoner and shot them on the grounds that they served the Americans (most of these special forces were trained and trained by the Americans, they are also one of the most combat-ready units of the Afghan army, which periodically gave the Taliban a fight).
A very demonstrative cruelty against the background of mild conditions for ordinary soldiers and coppers, who are even given money to travel home. This execution transparently hints how the Taliban intend to treat those who actively served the United States during the years of occupation. In fact, using this example, you can assess the motivation behind the complaints of translators and US volunteers in Afghanistan, who demand that they be evacuated from the country.
On the other hand, the Taliban usually take responsibility for such acts of violence and weave them into their propaganda. In this case, he officially denies his involvement, although the video can indeed be seen surrendering military and Taliban fighters.

[Garowe] The Somali National Army [SNA] has retaken Ba'adweyn town in Mudug, central Somalia, top military officials said, hours after deadly festivities with the al-Shabaab ...... the personification of Somali state failure... murderous Moslems, who had dislodged them from the strategic center.
Al-Shabaab captured the town a couple of weeks ago after a fierce shootout with the government troops, who were forced to immediately abandon it for their own safety. They have been collecting taxes from the locals besides plans to set a parallel administration.
Pictures by state media show military personnel from the 21st division raising the Somali flag at their former base. The town in Galmudug ...a semiautonomous region in central Somalia, bordering Puntland on the north. Galmudug is not trying to obtain international recognition as a separate nation, but rather considers itself autonomous within the larger Somali federalism, for what that's worth... state changed hands in recent weeks, and al-Shabaab has been keen to stay around in their bid to ouster fragile UN-backed Somalia administration.
According to the state media, the national army managed to destroy four bases that had been established by the gunnies in the town, besides removing several Improvised Explosive Devices [IEDs] which had been implanted by the terrorists.
"Somali National Army and Galmudug regional Darwish forces are conducting offensive operations to flush out the bully boyz in southern of Mudug region," state media reported. "The troops destroyed four Shabaab bases, foiled suicide kaboom, and removed IEDs."
Early on Friday, a boom-mobile went off near a military base in the vicinity of al-Shabaab-held Ba'adweyne town in Mudug, central Somalia, with reports indicating that the gunnies were prepared for an offensive to push the military further from the outskirts of the town.
Security officials confirmed that the blast was foiled after the government forces shot the driver. No casualties on SNA were reported, but the gunnies are said to have suffered immense losses during the foiled attack. It's after the attack the military managed to retake the town.
The al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabaab however, claimed it launched a car kaboom on Friday on a military base housing Somali army forces and Galmudug regional troops near Ba'adweyne, adding that it managed to kill four soldiers besides destroying one SNA vehicle.
In recent weeks, Ba'adweyn town has been an epicenter of the festivities between the government troops and the al-Shabaab murderous Moslems. The military has heightened operations against al-Shabaab in Middle Shabelle and parts of Lower Shabelle and Jubba ahead of AMISOM exit later on this year.

It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of... i's al-Qaeda.
According to the report, the Houthi forces successfully repelled the krazed killer offensive and launched a counteroffensive, liberating more than 100 square kilometers of territory.
The losses of the krazed killers, as well as the Hadists, amounted to 350 killed and 560 maimed, as well as 29 armored combat vehicles and carts. During the battle, the Houthis used 66 ballistic missiles and kamikaze UAVs.
The Houthis have once again accused the Hadis and Americans of operating in Yemen together with ISIS, whose operational interaction with the Death Eaters is carried out through Marib, while the Soddy Arabia ...a kingdom taking up the bulk of the Arabian peninsula. Its primary economic activity involves exporting oil and soaking Islamic rubes on the annual hajj pilgrimage. The country supports a large number of princes in whatcha might call princely splendor.

The Houthi command says it will conduct hostilities until the complete expulsion of ISIS bully boyz and their sponsors from the United States and Saudi Arabia from Yemen.
At the current stage, the Houthis are pursuing the retreating krazed killer forces and are carrying out a sweep of the liberated areas.

Al-Jaghifi explained, "Yes, there is coordination between the security services, but the duties are not carried out as they should be,...the security forces in the areas of al-Shamiya and al-Jazira are not enough."
Al-Jaghifi continued, "The failure to hold the Iraqi-Syrian borders properly since the liberation operations until now, facilitates the Organization's elements to infiltrate and move to and from Iraqi territory."

A young man was shot dead during a second night of protests over water shortages in southwest #Iran, a local official confirms, blaming armed protesters for the shooting, state news agency IRNA reports.https://t.co/9zLMqckZEe
Protesters erupted into the streets for a second consecutive night in Iran’s oil-rich southwest to protest water shortages, videos shared on social media showed, with reports of security forces shooting dead at least one protester.Security forces rubbed out Iranian Arab citizen Mostafa Naeemawi in the city of Shadegan (al-Falahiya) in Khuzestan province during Friday night’s unrest, Al Arabiya Farsi reported, citing local sources.

Several videos shared on social media showed a large crowd chanting in Arabic late on Friday in the city of Susangerd (al-Khafajiya). "The thieves robbed us in the name of religion," protesters in Susangerd could be heard chanting in Arabic in one video, in reference to Iran’s Shia theocracy.
The government sent a delegation on Friday to Ahwaz to tackle the water shortages that have sparked the protests, the semi-official Tasnim news agency reported.
Iran’s Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian warned in May of water shortages in the summer, saying this year was "one of the driest in 50 years."
The water shortages have also led to power outages which sparked protests in several cities earlier this month. Some of the protests turned political with chants against Iran’s highest authority, Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei ...the very aged actual dictator of Iran, successor to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini... The protests in Khuzestan come as thousands of workers in Iran’s key energy sector have launched strikes for better wages and working conditions.
Iran’s economy has been hit hard since 2018 when former US President Donald Trump ...Oh, noze! Not him!... withdrew Washington from the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers and reimposed sweeping sanctions on the country. The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the country’s economic problems.
