Brawl At Six Flags Over Georgia Results In Gunfire Between Police And Crowd, 1 Shot [Video]

The opening day of Six Flags ended in chaos.

Authorities were called to disperse a brawl between a large crowd inside the park.

Authorities are now looking for several individuals after one person was shot in the mayhem. Police exchanged gunfire with what they described as an “unruly crowd” of up to 600 people near the Six Flags Over Georgia amusement park in suburban Atlanta, ABC News reported.

The shooting occured around 6:15 p.m. Saturday on a service road just off the 290-acre theme park’s property in Austell, the Cobb County Police Department confirmed.

Prior to the shooting, Cobb County received reports that “a sizeable unruly crowd” of 500 to 600 people “running through the park and fighting,” the police said in a statement to Atlanta ABC affiliate WASB-TV.

Authorities arrived to a large crowd and followed them to a service road near the theme park, where multiple people opened fire on them, prompting police to return fire, according to the Cobb County police statement.

A 15-year-old was reportedly shot in the gunfire, and authorities confirmed a police officer shot the individual. The wounded individual was hospitalized, but their name and condition were not released.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation has launched an investigation. No arrests have been announced.

“It is incredibly disappointing that our community is disrupted at public events throughout the region by groups of underaged youth. Just like other venues in the area, we are committed to keeping this type of trouble outside our park and off our property,” Six Flags Over Georgia said in a statement.

The shooting occurred on the South Service Road, which is not owned or operated by Six Flags, theme park officials said.

“However, we join our community and the Atlanta region in our commitment to safety and security. We won’t put up with that type of activity here,” park officials said, adding that the park has “state-of-the-art security systems and metal detection.”

“Every guest is expected to follow our strict code of conduct and anyone unwilling to follow that code of conduct is unwelcome,” park officials added.
