Calls to police reporting fighting, gunshots, emergency exits being padlocked and more were all listed as reasons for the shut down.This is the first time Frisco officials have revoked a special event permit, Communications Director Dana Baird said.
Social media posts claimed there were gunshots at or near the fair. Frisco Police officials deemed the posts inaccurate.
Social media posts are inaccurately reporting an incident at the Frisco Fair. Last night, FPD Officers responded to multiple disturbances at the location, including a report of shots fired. However, no arrests were made as a result of these calls, nor any known gunshot victims. pic.twitter.com/n5DG8OGCwD— Frisco Police (@FriscoPD) April 30, 2023
