Woman Shot by Stray Bullet While Sitting in Section 141 at Cardinals Game

A St. Louis woman was shot by a stray bullet while watching Tuesday night’s game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers at Busch Stadium.

The Post Dispatch reported there a call to police for shots fired near the 14th Street and Chouteau Avenue area moments before the woman was struck. The area is less than a mile from the stadium.

The woman was sitting in section 141 – which is a pricey seat behind the dugout.

KMOV has more:

According to police, the woman felt a pain in her arm after taking off her jacket around 8:40 p.m. and noticed a small abrasion above her elbow.

When the 34-year-old went to the first aid station, employees notified an officer working secondary employment at the baseball game.

A bullet slug was found in the area around where the woman was seated

The Cardinals released a statement after the incident on Tuesday.

We are aware of an incident last night in which a fan reported being struck by a stray bullet that presumably originated from outside of the stadium. The fan was treated for an abrasion and a bruise on her arm at First Aid and released. She was interviewed by police who are investigating the matter. There is nothing more important than the safety of our fans, and the Cardinals are grateful that no one was seriously injured. We will be sharing more information with the media as further details emerge.
