Shooting at Popular Pennsylvania Amusement Park

WPXI reported that a shooting occurred inside the Kennywood amusement park located at 4800 Kennywood Blvd, West Mifflin, PA 15122. 

At approximately 10:49 p.m. on Saturday, September 24, 2022, gunshots rang out inside the park. Witnesses said two large groups of juveniles swarmed the area before the gunfire began. No suspects have been identified, and police do not believe an altercation between the two groups led up to the shooting at this point. Two 15-year-old boys and a 39-year-old man were shot. All three victims were listed in stable condition.

Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot At An Amusement Park

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has experience representing shooting victims and their families in shooting lawsuits in Pennsylvania. During a recent discussion, Brian shared his thoughts on the legal rights available to victims shot at an amusement park. 

"Guests at amusement parks expect to enjoy their day without fearing dangers, such as shootings. Amusement park owners have a legal responsibility to ensure their park guests are safe from potentially dangerous situations. Park owners should implement safety measures that include bag checks, metal detectors, security cameras, and patrolling security personnel. These measures can help to reduce the risk of preventable violent crimes."

"Sadly, when a shooting occurs at a heavily populated amusement park, it is necessary to determine if all security precautions were in place. Without security measures in place, the park can be deemed negligent and held accountable. Theme park shooting victims can learn more about their legal options by speaking with an experienced violent crime lawyer."
