Well it seems that the copycats are out again. This time it is my hometown of San Antonio. The shooter managed to wound at least two people before he was shot by a off duty cop.
Two people were wounded late Sunday when gunfire erupted at a local movie theater, sending panicked moviegoers rushing to exits and ducking for cover, police and witnesses said.
A lone suspect was in custody after being wounded by an unidentified law enforcement officer, a Bexar County Sheriff’s Office spokesman said.
Also it seems that the theater was not the original target and was not random.
According to reports, the gunman’s original target was a China Garden Restaurant where he was employed.
Officials say the man was looking for a female co-worker, and when he learned she wasn’t there, he produced a gun. The weapon jammed when he tried to fire it in the restaurant, and some of the patrons fled across the parking lot and into the nearby theater.
Also there is something else that makes this worse.
The shooting occurred last night at about 9:25 p.m. at the Santikos Mayan 14 movie theater during a showing of “The Hobbit.”
