(8/18/22) We reported it on Screamscape social media at the time as I was out of town, but a shooting took place in front of Six Flags Great America at night over the weekend. According to the report, a car drove through the parking lot to the main gate and opened fire and quickly speed off. It is thought that this shooting was after a specific target. Panic ensued inside the theme park however as the initial thought was that an active shooter may have somehow gotten inside the park, but that was not the case.
