Man Shot To Death During a Screening of 'Lone Survivor'


A moviegoer shot two people—one of them fatally—this afternoon, reportedly after one of them refused to stop texting during a movie.

According to Fox 13 in Tampa Bay, a man and his wife were watching a matinee showing ofLone Survivor when they asked the couple in front of them to stop texting. An "altercation" followed, and the man reportedly pulled out a handgun and shot the two people in front him.

"The victim was on his cell phone. He was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation between the suspect and the victim," Sheriff Chris Noccotold FOX 13.

Both victims were rushed to the hospital, where the man later died. Another moviegoer reportedly detained the suspect until police arrived.

"It's absolutely crazy it would rise to this level," Sheriff Nocco said.
