Multiple agencies responded to the park around 10:49 p.m. Saturday after initial reports of shots fired.

Police are now searching for a suspect. Officials describe him as a black male wearing a black hoodie and a COVID-19-style mask at the time of the shooting. Officers recovered a handgun inside the park.

The three victims include a 15-year-old who was shot in the thigh, a 39-year-old who was shot in the leg, and, officials said, a second juvenile who arrived at a hospital with a graze wound. Several other people were treated for “trampling style” injuries, police said.

Saturday was the park’s first public Phantom Fall Fest day of the season. The Halloween-themed event was scheduled to run from noon to 11 p.m. Saturday.

The park was scheduled to open Sunday, but Kennywood’s website indicates that the park will now be closed and will reopen Sept. 30.

In a series of tweets Saturday night on Twitter, park officials wrote: “The park is closed for the night and all guests have exited. We are aware of a situation that occurred this evening and are working with local law enforcement. The safety of our guests and Team Members are our top priority. Members of the park’s security, Allegheny County, and West Mifflin police departments were already on site and immediately responded.”

While police said a handgun was recovered inside the park, all guests and employees to Kennywood “must pass through metal detectors at the entrance gate, and all bags, purses and coolers are subject to search,” the park’s website says.
