Police in Washington, DC are offering a $10,000 reward for an arrest in the Saturday night shooting that left three wounded and sparked chaos at a Washington Nationals ballgame.

Cops also released surveillance photos of the gray Toyota that fled the scene following the 9:30 p.m. shooting, which prompted many fans to flee their seats in a panic and brought the game between the Nationals and San Diego Padres to a screeching halt in the sixth inning.

“The suspect vehicle in this case is described as a gray Toyota Corolla with a missing hubcap on the rear driver’s side wheel and dark tinted windows,” the Metropolitan Police Department said in a press release Sunday.

“The vehicle is believed to be displaying a Virginia temporary tag,” cops said. “The vehicle was captured by a nearby surveillance camera and can be seen in the photos.”

Police are looking for two suspects believed to be involved in the shooting.

The gunplay left three with non-life-threatening injuries, including a fan who was outside the stadium at the time and was hit.

Two others believed to be involved in the shooting later showed up at a local hospital and are being questioned by police, the department said.

Inside Nationals Park, the shooting sent players scrambling for their families and rushing into the clubhouse, while fans ducked behind seats or ran for the exits.

An announcement by stadium officials asked fans to briefly shelter in place.
