A shooting Friday at Kauffman Stadium, home of the Kansas City Royals, left one man dead and a Royals employee injured, police told multiple local media outlets.
According to multiple reports, the man shot the employee, a woman, before turning the gun on himself. The woman, who was not killed, was then taken to the hospital via ambulance. The names of both victims have not been released.
The Kauffman Stadium lots were closed during the afternoon, but have since been reopened.
The Royals begin a series tonight with the LA Angels, and the team told radio station 610 AM that the 8:10 p.m ET start will not be affected.
