The 34-year old victim was within the ballpark during the game against the Milwaukee Brewers when she felt pain in her arm. She proceeded to a first aid station for first aid treatment and a bullet was later discovered near her seat. She sustained an abrasion on one of her elbows.

Todd Porter, 54-years old was seated in front of the victim with his son. The woman said that she might have been shot. He thought she was joking but everybody turned around and she had blood flowing down from her elbow. He decided to leave the game before any shooting occurs.
