‘No one’s really given any answers’: Sox fans left with questions about shooting


A night after two people were wounded by gunfire inside Guaranteed Rate Field as the White Sox faced the Oakland Athletics, fans were left with many questions about the shooting — but had few answers.

At some point amid the fourth inning during Friday’s match, a 42-year-old woman was struck in the leg by a bullet and was taken to University of Chicago Medical center for treatment. A 26-year-old woman at the game was also grazed in the abdomen but declined medical attention, according to Chicago police.

Where the bullets came from — whether inside the stadium or from somewhere outside — remained a mystery nearly a day later as fans gathered for the final game in the series Saturday evening.

Sox officials said the shooting didn’t stem from any altercation inside the stadium, which they say stadium footage backs up. A statement released by the team said the origin of the projectiles was still under investigation.

Police have said there wasn’t an “active threat” to the nearly 22,000 attendees of the game at any point, but have revealed little about their investigation and declined Saturday to answer questions about the shooting.

Police are asking anyone with information about the incident to contact the Area One Detective Division at (312) 747-8380, or submit an anonymous tip through
