"We are aware of an incident last night in which a fan reported being struck by a stray bullet that presumably originated from outside the stadium," the Cardinals said in a statement Wednesday. "The fan was treated for an abrasion and a bruise on her arm at First Aid and released. She was interviewed by police, who are investigating the matter.
"There is nothing more important than the safety of our fans, and the Cardinals are grateful that no one was seriously injured. We will be sharing more information with the media as further details emerge."
