Teen, 15, Shot Outside Six Flags Over Georgia by Police in Critical Condition

*The teenager who was shot by police during a massive brawl that broke out inside Six Flags Over Georgia on the park’s opening day is reportedly in critical condition.

According to the Cobb County Police Department, about 500 to 600 teenagers ran “through the park” on Saturday and engaged “in altercations.”

We reported earlier that officers responded to calls about an “unruly” crowd at the amusement park on the evening of March 2nd, The Blast reports. Several angles of the brutal melee were captioned on camera and posted on social media.

During the violence, police shot and injured one teenager whose condition was initially unknown. However, Complex reports that the 15-year-old remains in critical condition at Grady Hospital in Atlanta. 

“Last night a violent mob stormed the Six Flags in Georgia. Chaos erupted involving 500-600 teens that viciously beat and stomped out one another,” one person shared on X/Twitter, per The Blast. “The mob then began to shoot at the police.”

“At some point, multiple people began shooting, hitting an unoccupied CCPD (Cobb County Police Department) marked patrol car,” said the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in a statement. “As officers identified where the shots were coming from, they ran after people who had run into the woods. During the incident, one CCPD officer fired his weapon.”

Six Flags Georgia responded to the shooting, claiming that the incident did not occur on the theme park’s property. 

“It is incredibly disappointing that our community is disrupted at public events throughout the region by groups of underaged youth,” Six Flags Over Georgia said, The Blast reports.

“Just like other venues in the area, we are committed to keeping this type of trouble outside our park and off our property. There was police activity involving gunshots; we want to confirm there was no shooting at our property or parking lot,” the company’s statement continued. 

“This took place on South Service Road which is not owned or operated by Six Flags. However, we join our community and the Atlanta region in our commitment to safety and security,” Six Flags Over Georgia added. “We won’t put up with that type of activity here.”
