Police confirmed Saturday that Knott’s Berry Farm had closed early due to many fights.

The clashes were reported about 7:30 p.m., when police say many fights erupted and they got reports of probable gunfire.

According to NBC4, two individuals were transported to a hospital for treatment, although the extent of their injuries was not immediately known and no gunshots were fired in the park.

“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. Knotts Berry Farm has closed for the night and we ask you avoid the area until further notice,” the Buena Park Police Department said on Facebook.

Knott’s Berry Farm released a statement that read:

“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.” 

The theme park, which regularly shuts at 11 p.m., announced its early closure on Twitter.

The park reopened on Sunday morning as planned.
