In an incredibly unsettling story, 43 year old Christopher Sanna, an Army vet, was leaving the game between the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers when the unthinkable happened.
Chis was spending the night with his brothers, girlfriend and mother to celebrate her 60th birthday but had to leave the ballpark a bit early as he had work early the next morning.
So at 10:30 pm, Chris and his girlfriend headed to their car when they were confronted by two men in a black sedan. Chris’s girlfriend handed over her purse at which point the suspects pulled a gun.
Chris and his girlfriend began to run at which point they were shot at twice.
Chris is now in the hospital, the bullet piercing his liver, and striking his spine and lungs. Doctors have told him he may get some feeling back but that walking was out of the question.
His family is now expressing fears of returning to the ballpark ever again. Do you feel safe heading to your car after a sporting event? Let us know in the comments below!
