According to, police were responding to an “active situation” at Spectator’s Sports Bar & Grill at 3200 Adventureland Dr.

They are searching for a black male described as five-foot-five and 150 pounds. He was wearing a white button-up shirt, blue tactical pants, brown shoes, and a dark ball cap. See the photo here.

Altoona Police Department says they are asking people to stay away from the area of Adventureland, Prairie Meadows, and NE Hubbell Ave.

If you see the suspect do not make contact with him, instead call 911 immediately.

Adventureland was closed Friday morning while the Suburban Emergency Response Team swept the park to make sure the suspect is not on the grounds. They now say they will open shortly.
