A collegiate baseball player was shot during a game on Saturday as he was standing in the bullpen, according to a story from KTAL.

The 18-year-old was reportedly struck by what authorities suspect to have been a stray bullet.

Around 5:30 p.m., a game between Texas A&M-Texarkana and the University of Houston-Victoria was interrupted by a shooting. In Texarkana, Texas, the game was being played at George Dobson Field in Spring Lake Park.

According to a statement from the Texarkana Texas Police Department, the player, who was unnamed, was struck by a bullet that appeared to originate from an altercation in a neighborhood to the west of the field.

The player had surgery at a nearby medical facility. He is anticipated to fully recover, according to a social media post from Texas A&M University – Texarkana. He was listed in stable condition on Sunday.

“We initially received several calls of shots fired on Lynda Street, which is in a neighborhood just west of Spring Lake Park. Moments later, we received a 911 call that a baseball player at the park had collapsed and may have been shot,” said the Texarkana Texas Police Department.

“We were able to almost immediately determine that the two incidents were related, so as some officers were at the ball field rendering aid to the victim, other officers were on Lynda Street looking for any evidence or witnesses.”

Three people have been taken into custody, according to the police, in relation to the incident. Officers detained Nathan Moore, 19, for tampering with evidence and marijuana possession; Marcell Beaver, 19, for marijuana possession; Yankeengea Smith, 49, for illegally possessing a firearm by a felon and two counts of possessing a controlled substance (methamphetamine and Ecstasy pills).
