At least four people were shot on Saturday night outside of Nationals Park during the Washington Nationals game against the San Diego Padres, D.C. Police said, according to NBC Washington.

The shooting was reported at N Street and South Capitol Street SW, near the Third Base Gate of the ballpark, police said.

The victims were transported to the hospital, and are conscious and breathing. The shooting was not related to the game, police noted. The incident does not appear to be related to the game.

The Padres had just taken the field for the bottom of the sixth inning when the gunshots were heard from the left field side of the ballpark.

Videos posted to social media showed fans fleeing stadium.

The Nationals said via their Twitter account that "Fans are encouraged to exit the ballpark via the CF and RF gates at this time. We're working with law enforcement to provide more information as soon as it becomes available."

Later, the Nationals announced that the game had been suspended and would resume at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday.
