A 56-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks inside the Century 14 movie theaters in downtown Sparks on Tuesday night when a gun he had brought into the cinema discharged, police dispatch said.
No one else was hurt in the theater when the gun discharged while the unidentified man was seeing “The Bourne Legacy,” police said.
Calls reporting shots fired in the theater came in about 8:40 p.m., according to preliminary information.
Witnesses inside the theater at the time the shot was fired stated that a (man) was adjusting himself in his seat when a gun he had on him discharged.
The man immediately got up, apologized to those around him and left the theater before police arrived, police said.
He later was found at a Reno hospital where he was being treated for a wound not considered life-threatening.Seriously it's just a month after a massacre at an Aurora, Colo., movie theater and there have been several incidents at movie theatres. People can't you sit through a 2 hour movie with checking your phone for messages and firing off your gun?
