Chicago police confirm shooting at White Sox game at Guaranteed Rate Field; post-game Vanilla Ice concert canceled

CHICAGO (WLS) — A shooting at the White Sox game caused some scary moments for some fans, and appeared to cancel the post-game concert.

The shooting apparently happened somewhere in the left field bleachers. Further details haven’t been released by the police, and the White Sox have not commented on the incident.

Tom Miller, who attended the game, said that he was sitting two rows behind where the shooting occurred. He said he didn’t hear or see what happened but moments later a woman appeared to be bleeding from the leg. He said he believed two people, possibly three, suffered some sort of wound.

He said security then came and ushered them away from their seats and up to section six. He said they stayed there for 45 minutes then returned to their seats.

The game was not interrupted. It was not clear if the shooting happened inside the park or outside.

After the game, a message came up on the ballpark screen saying the post-show Vanilla Ice and Tone Loc concert was canceled “due to technical difficulties.”

Fans who had waited through the Sox brutal 12-4 loss to the Oakland A’s were left angry and confused by the sudden cancelation and lack of information.

A Chicago police spokesperson confirmed there was a “shooting incident” at the game, but did not offer any further details.
