Theatergoer In Critical Condition After Man's Drunken Blunder

At a Regal Cinemas in Renton, Washington, a 40-year-old woman was shot in her shoulder area after a 29-year-old intoxicated man accidentally dropped his gun.

She was initially listed in critical condition, shortly after 8 pm Thursday while watching the movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. Police believe the suspect and victim did not know each other. The gun went off about 20 minutes into the film. The unnamed victim was then rushed to Harbor View Medical Center in critical condition.

Hospital spokeswoman Susan Gregg said the woman's condition has since been upgraded to stable.

Witnesses say the gunman calmly walked out the front door of the theater to head to a nearby restaurant. He dropped the weapon there, used the bathroom, picked it back up and left. At around 9:40 p.m., police got a call from a man in Newcastle saying his 29-year-old son told him he accidentally shot someone at a movie theater.

The police took the suspected shooter into custody who admitted he had been drinking earlier.
