TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) – A baseball player with Texas A&M University-Texarkana was struck by a stray bullet during a game Saturday evening.

Officers responded to the shooting at the George Dobson Field at Spring Lake Park around 5:30 p.m. Officials say the 18-year-old was standing in the bullpen when a stray bullet struck him.

The Texarkana Texas Police Department says the shot came from an altercation in a neighborhood west of the park.

First responders took the baseball player to St. Michael Hospital for treatment. The TTPD says he went into surgery Saturday and is in stable condition.

“The shots came from a neighborhood to the west of Spring Lake Park and was the result of some type of disturbance that happened there,” said TTPD Public Information Officer Shawn Vaughn. “The bullet traveled travel several hundred feet and struck the victim as he was standing near the bullpen area of the ball field in the park. He was not targeted nor was the shooting related to any activity going on in the park. It was a terrible incident where he was standing at the wrong place at the wrong time.”

As a precaution, BSA officials decided to end the Scout-O-Rama happening in another area of the park. In a Twitter post, the TAMUT athletics department said, Saturday’s baseball game vs UHV has been declared a “no contest” by the Red River Athletic Conference.”

School officials say counseling services are available to players and other students.

TTPD asks that anyone with information on this shooting contact them at (903) 798-3876.
