LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Monday night’s game between the Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves has been postponed following a shooting at the Washington Navy Yard that claimed the lives of 12 people Monday morning.

A tweet from the Nationals public relations department said the game would be rescheduled for 1 p.m. Tuesday and be played as part of a day-night doubleheader at Nats Park in Southeast D.C. The ballpark is a short distance from where the shootings occurred and stadium patrons use the Navy Yard-Ballpark Metro station.

Authorities are using the stadium’s parking lot B as a meeting point for families and employees of the Navy Yard.

Tuesday’s games will start at 1:05 p.m. and 7:05 p.m.
