A shocking incident occurred at Six Flags over Georgia on the opening day of its 2024 season, where a 15-year-old was shot and critically wounded by police. The chaos unfolded as a large crowd of 500-600 people were reportedly running through the park and engaging in fights, prompting park security to call the Cobb County Police for assistance.

According to reports, multiple individuals began shooting as officers were trying to control the crowd near the park's entrance, leading to a dangerous situation. In the midst of the chaos, one bullet struck an unoccupied patrol car, prompting officers to track down the source of the gunfire. The pursuit led them into a wooded area where they ultimately fired their weapons, hitting the minor who was later rushed to Grady Hospital in critical condition.

In a statement, the Georgia Bureau of Investigation, which is handling the case, revealed that a handgun was recovered near the injured minor. Six Flags clarified that the shooting took place on a service road and not within the park premises, emphasizing their commitment to safety and security for all visitors.

The incident has sparked concerns about the safety of public events in the region, with Six Flags expressing disappointment over the disruptive behavior of underage individuals. While reports from TMZ suggested a fatality in the shooting, official sources have not confirmed this information.

Six Flags Over Georgia, located in Cobb County, is a popular amusement park just 18 miles west of Atlanta. The situation remains under investigation, and authorities are working to ensure the safety of all visitors in the future.
