Major League Baseball officials have reportedly postponed tonight’s Washington Nationals game due to the stadium’s proximity to the location of this morning’s Navy Yard shooting that has left at least 12 people dead.
Nationals Park is located several blocks from the building where the shootings took place. Police are still reportedly in active pursuit of one suspect; while the original shooter, identified as Aaron Alexis, was killed in firefight.
The Nationals will make up the postponed game with the visiting Atlanta Braves tomorrow afternoon in a double-header.
Tonite’s #Nationals-Braves game has been postponed and will be made up as split doubleheader (1:05 p/7:05p) on Tue., Sept. 17.
