Three people were shot outside of Nationals Park in Washington on Saturday night during a baseball game between the Washington Nationals and the San Diego Padres, the police said, prompting fans to pour out of the stands and players to scramble relatives to safety in a scene of fear and confusion.

The police said they were investigating the shooting and that there was no ongoing threat. Three people were injured in a shootout between people in two vehicles, the police said, including a bystander outside the stadium who had been attending the game.

The game was halted in the middle of the sixth inning, with the Padres leading, 8-4. Nationals officials said the game would resume on Sunday afternoon, and that the teams would play their regularly scheduled game afterward on Sunday.

The Nationals canceled their postgame news conference with players and the team’s manager. They said in a statement on Twitter that fans had been encouraged to leave the ballpark through the center field and right field gates.
