Police in Illinois said that a shooting outside a Six Flags Amusement Park in Chicago on August 14 was “not a random act”.
In a statement released on their Facebook page, the Gurnee Police Department said that according to their investigation, suspects entered the parking lot of Six Flags in a white sedan. The suspects exited the vehicle and fired shots at an individual, before leaving in the white sedan.
Police said the shooting “appeared to be a targeted incident” and the suspects did not enter the amusement park.
Police said two victims, aged 17 and 19, were transported to the Advocate Condell Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries. A third victim declined to go to the hospital.
Paulina Palermo recorded footage of people fleeing the scene as emergency services arrived. She said: “The horror of the families and kids hiding in the bathroom with us. I hope nobody experiences this fear ever.”
