[아시아경제 황수미 기자] The Major League Baseball (MLB) match between the Washington Nationals and the San Diego Padres, played by Ha-Sung Kim, was suspended due to a sudden gunshot.

According to foreign media on the 18th (local time), several gunshots sounded in the hall before the sixth inning of the match between Washington and San Diego at the National Park in Washington, DC the day before. Surprised spectators rushed out of the stadium, and the players were evacuated. Eventually, the game was stopped due to chaos.

The sound of a gunfight outside the stadium echoed throughout the arena. Washington D.C. police said two vehicles had been involved in a gunfight near the stadium, with one being arrested and the other being tracked.

Three people were injured in this accident. A female fan outside the stadium was injured, and the woman is currently being treated at a hospital and is said to be not life-threatening. The other two injured were involved in the shootout, police said.

In this game, San Diego player Ha-seong Kim started as the 7th batter. Kim Ha-seong had one hit and two RBIs in three at-bats. San Diego was leading 8-4 by adding three points in the early 6th inning, but the game was interrupted by a shooting incident before the end of the 6th inning.

The suspended game is scheduled to resume the next day, from the point at which it was suspended on the 19th.
