BUENA PARK (CNS) – Knott’s Berry Farm will reopen Sunday morning after multiple fights forced the park to close early.
The Knott’s website indicated the park would reopen at 9 a.m. Sunday.
Buena Park police responded to the theme park after receiving multiple 911 calls around 7:30 p.m. Saturday, media sources reported.
The department posted on Facebook at 8:39 p.m., “We’re currently working an incident at Knotts Berry Farm involving multiple fights in the park. A report of shots fired was reported with numerous 911 callers. Officers were on scene during the calls and determined there was no shooting.”
Knott’s confirmed the closure on Twitter: “The safety of Knott’s Berry Farm’s guests and associates is always our top priority. On Saturday evening, the decision was made to close the park 3 hours early due to unruly behavior and altercations involving a number of teenagers. This behavior did not align with our park’s values, and was not the experience we want any guest to have while visiting Knott’s Berry Farm.”
Park-goers scrambled to get out of the way of the fights, CBS2 reported, adding that police questioned a number of people including victims who suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
It was unclear what started the trouble or if any people were arrested.
