Three people wounded at a Pennsylvania amusement park

The person suspected of opening fire during an “altercation” at a Pittsburgh amusement park on Saturday is still at large as police continue their search for him on Sunday.

Allegheny police said that the shooting took place at around 10:45 p.m. at the Kennywood amusement park, and that it resulted in the wounding of three people: two boys aged 15 years old and a man aged 39 years old.

As a result of the subsequent mayhem, a number of individuals were hurt as they attempted to leave the area. Some of them were run over by other people.

One of the children had a gunshot wound to the leg and was sent to UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh, where his status was listed as stable. The adult, on the other hand, was shot in the leg but was treated and sent home from UPMC Mercy.

The second adolescent, who had a graze wound to the leg and left the park on his own, subsequently presented himself to UPMC McKeesport with an update on his condition.

Officials said that the suspect was a young black man who was wearing a dark hoodie and a COVID mask.

No one knows how the gun got into Kennywood, since everyone who goes there has to go through a metal detector and their bags are also checked.

According to the website for the amusement park, the shooting occurred on the opening night of the 20th annual Phantom Fall Fest that was being held there.

According to the park’s website, Kennywood was closed on Sunday and will return on Friday.
