Shots Fired At San Antonio Movie Theater, Two People Wounded
World

Shots were fired at the Santikos Mayan Palace 14 theater complex around 9:25pm Sunday night leaving two people wounded.

According to Bexar County Sheriff’s department spokesman Louis Antu, the shots were originally fired at a nearby restaurant and then “carried on into the theater.” The reason behind the shooting is unclear.

It is said that the gunman shot a male in the theater lot, then continued inside and fired off a shot not hitting anyone. The man in the lot appears to be in stable condition.

An off duty sheriff’s deputy was working security at the theater and shot the gunman. It is also suspected that prior to entering the theater the gunman shot at a San Antonio Police Department patrol car.

“He was shooting at a marked unit. He knows he was shooting at an officer, so that’s (an) automatic (charge of) attempted capital murder,” says Antu.

The suspect was taken to the hospital without being immediately charged. Most of the moviegoers feared the worst.

“We thought we were going to die,” said Tara Grace, who snuck into a bathroom stall and locked herself in after hearing the gunshot.
