Astros: Fan Carrying Gun Was Plain Clothes Cop Honoring Slain Cop



The Houston Astros have released a Twitter statement on the fan who was carrying a gun at last night’s game against Baltimore. There was some question this morning as to what was going on with the fan and the gun since ballpark policy is that weapons are not allowed.

Last night, however, was a night for Tyler Martin, son on fallen Houston officer Richard Martin, to throw out the first pitch. Richard Martin was killed in May when he was struck and killed while deploying spike strips to stop a suspect during a high-speed pursuit.

Minute Maid ballpark rules still prohibit fans unaffiliated with police agencies from carrying guns.
