An investigation is underway by the Texarkana Texas Police after a shooting occurred at George Dobson Field at Spring Lake Park at around 5:30 pm this evening.

The victim, an 18-year-old player from Texas A&M – Texarkana, was hit by a stray bullet while standing in the bullpen area.

It seems that the bullet came from an altercation in a neighboring area located to the west of the park.

The victim was immediately transported to St. Michael Hospital and is currently undergoing surgery.

As a precautionary measure, the baseball game was called off, and the Scout-O-Rama event, taking place in a different part of the park, was ended early by the BSA officials following the shooting incident.

If anyone has any information about the incident, they are requested to contact the authorities at 903-798-3876.
