At least three people were injured in a shooting outside Six Flags Great America Sunday evening in suburban Chicago, according to multiple reports.

After receiving a lot of 911 calls, officers immediately responded at about 7:50 p.m. Sunday at Six Flags Great America, about 45 miles (72 kilometers) north of Chicago, the Gurnee Police Department said.

“The shooting … was not a random act, and appeared to be a targeted incident that occurred outside the park,” police said in a statement posted to Facebook.

Two people were taken to a hospital for evaluation and a third declined treatment at the scene, Six Flags said. Their conditions were not confirmed.

The incident created chaos and confusion, with videos posted to social media showing parkgoers attempting to shelter in place or hide. Multiple agencies responded, including Illinois State Police.

Police said the suspects exited a vehicle, fired shots at an individual in the parking lot then drove away.
