Juvenile shot in leg in Pennsylvania movie theater

Pennsylvania Headlines

State police say a struggle over a gun in a western Pennsylvania movie theater ended with one youth shot in the leg.

Police in Washington County say six male juveniles were at Regal Cinemas in North Franklin Township just before midnight Saturday “causing a disturbance and continuously moving around and changing their seats.”

Police say other moviegoers asked the teens to remain in their seats. Authorities say one person approached the group and an altercation ensued and spilled into the hallway toward the exit.

Police say a firearm was brandished and a struggle for the gun began, and one of the juveniles was hit in the lower leg when the gun discharged. The victim’s identity and condition wasn’t immediately released.

Authorities say an investigation continues.
