2 shot at Ballpark Village near Busch Stadium in St. Louis on Sunday night

Two people were shot during an event at Ballpark Village in downtown St. Louis, right across from Busch Stadium, on Sunday night, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

One of the victims was shot in the head and was unresponsive, and the other was shot in the thigh. Both were taken to the hospital. The shooter escaped from police, and is still on the loose, according to the Post-Dispatch.

From the Post-Dispatch:

St. Louis police Maj. Mary Warnecke said several hundred people were at a ticketed event on the rooftop level of the Budweiser Brew House when an argument broke out about 8 p.m. Someone pulled a gun and fired. She said it’s believed the people struck were innocent bystanders. Both are men in their 30s.

Ballpark Village sits just across the street from Busch Stadium, and is an integral part of every St. Louis Cardinals home game. The Cardinals played a day game against the Pirates in Pittsburgh on Sunday. They will play next at home on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox.

“We are shocked and saddened by the senseless shooting at a private event at Ballpark Village Sunday night,” the Cardinals said in a statement. “There is nothing more important to us than the safety of our guests. We are praying for the victims and their families and we are working in every way possible to help the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department with their investigation, including their effort to apprehend the individual responsible. We are grateful that our security staff and the St. Louis Police Officers on site were able to respond so quickly to help care for the victims. We are urging anyone with information about what took place to contact the St. Louis Police Department or Crime Stoppers.”
