A 56-year-old man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks inside the Century 14 movie theaters outside of Reno, Nevada, on Tuesday night when a gun he had brought into the cinema discharged, police dispatch said.
No one else was hurt in the theater in downtown Sparks when the gun discharged while the unidentified resident was seeing “The Bourne Legacy,” police said, according to the Reno Gazette Journal.
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,” Sparks police Sgt. Pay Dyer said in statement issued late Tuesday.
