Kennywood Park officials will release a ‘full’ update on Wednesday morning


Kennywood Park officials are set to release what they call a “comprehensive” update after Saturday’s shooting Wednesday morning.

Officials told Channel 11 they would recap the security in place that night, including the weapons detection system that screened all incoming at the front gate.

Representatives of the company that manages the park’s new security system, Evolv, will demonstrate the security system.

The park also plans to share new and improved measures implemented ahead of this weekend.

This update comes after police and EMS swarmed Kennywood late Saturday night after Brandon Ward, 39, and two 15-year-olds were shot inside the park.

Investigators and park officials have not confirmed whether the shooter was able to bypass the new security system when he entered the park with a firearm.

Police told 11 News on Monday they are investigating whether someone jumped the fence or ran the gun through.
