There were several fights that broke out the night before on Knotts Berry Farm, forcing the park to close for several hours before closing.
Buena Park police reported that numerous 911 calls reported possible shooting, but police on the scene confirmed that there were no shots fired.
Police advised people to stay clear of the area while they investigate the incident.
“The safety of Knott’s Berry Farm’s guests and associates is always our top priority,” the park stated in the statement. “On Saturday night it was decided to shut down the park for three hours before closing time because of unruly behavior and fights involving a variety of teens. The behavior was not in line with the values of our park, and did not provide the kind of one we would want guests to experience when going to Knott’s Berry Farm.”
Rumors of a shooting at the venue prompted fearful patrons to run away according to posts on social media.
“There was a fight while everyone was crowded to get out,” wrote one park-goer on Facebook. “Suddenly everyone began screaming, then ran. We were allowed out through the area for staff only.”
