Two people have been injured in a shooting during a baseball game in Chicago.
A 42-year-old woman was wounded in the leg and another woman, 26, received a grazed abdomen at the Guaranteed Rate Field Stadium on Friday evening, police said.
Detectives are still in the preliminary stages of their investigation.
In a statement, Chicago Police Department said: “Upon receiving notification of this incident, CPD responded immediately and deployed additional resources while coordinating with White Sox security to maintain the safety of those who were in attendance or working at the game.
“At no time was it believed there was an active threat.”
The White Sox said investigators are not sure if shots were fired from outside or inside the ballpark.
“While the police continue to investigate, White Sox security confirms that this incident did not involve an altercation of any kind,” the team said in its statement.
“The White Sox are thinking of the victims at this time and wishing them a speedy recovery.”
The 42-year-old victim is said to be in a “fair” condition in hospital, while the other woman apparently refused medical attention.
Major League Baseball said it was in discussion with both the team and the police.
Some 21,906 people were at the ground for the game, which saw the White Sox lose 12-4 to Oakland.
A concert following the game featuring Vanilla Ice, Rob Base and Tone Loc was cancelled due to “technical issues”, according to a billboard inside the stadium.
