In utterly shocking news, there are incoming reports of an alleged murder-suicide in the parking lot of Kauffman stadium mere hours before the Angels and Royals are set to kick off their weekend series. Bob Dutton of the KC Star is all over it:
Reports of a shooting in the parking lot at Kauffman Stadium. The lost are currently closed. Nobody getting in or out. No other details.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) September 14, 2012
Scary, scary stuff especially since there were bomb threats at a government building in Kansas City shortly before this incident. Alas, more details are becoming available.
Am told a man committed suicide and shot a woman who was taken away in an ambulance.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) September 14, 2012
This is all preliminary right now and there are conflicting reports as to whether or not the injured woman was an employee of the Royals.
There is also no word yet on whether or not the game, scheduled for 8:10 PM ET, will proceed as scheduled.
UPDATE #1: The woman was, in fact, a stadium employee.
Am told the female shooting victim was a parking lot attendant and that she was breathing when she departed in the ambulance.— Bob Dutton (@Royals_Report) September 14, 2012
Update #2: Mutiple sources are reporting that the game will go on as planned.
