    This happened in Florida, of course. The fucking movie hadn't even started, so now the fucktard won't even get the chance to see Lone Survivor. :facepalm:




    WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. - An argument over a cellphone inside a Wesley Chapel theater led to a fight and shooting that left one person dead and another wounded Monday afternoon, according to Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco.

    The second victim suffered injuries that were said to be non life-threatening. She was airlifted to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, according to EMS personnel.

    A male suspect is in custody. No names have been released.

    "It's crazy. I never thought something like this would happen at our theater," said Leny Vega, who is a theater employee.

    The shooting occurred at the Cobb Grove 16 Theater at at 6333 Wesley Grove Boulevard near State Road 54 and I-75 around 1:30 p.m.

    According to Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, one of the victims, a male, was texting. Another male sitting behind him became irritated.

    "The victim was on his cellphone, he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation," Nocco said. "During that altercation, the suspect decided to pull out a .380 and he shoots the victim."

    Nocco said the movie, "Lone Survivor," had not yet started when the shooting occurred.

    It wasn't immediately clear how many people were inside the theater during the gunfire.

    "Something happening like that in little Wesley Chapel is just, I never even thought it would happen," said theater employee Gabriel Mena.

    Traffic in the immediate area was shut down.

    "It is absolutely crazy that it would rise to this level of altercation over somebody just texting in a movie theater," Nocco said.

    In summer 2012, a man killed a dozen people and injured 70 at a movie theater in Aurora, Colo. Twenty-six-year-old James Holmes is charged in the killings.


    "When the first call came in and you're hearing a shooting at a movie theater, The first thing you think is those critical incidents that have gone on throughout the country. That's why we train for them," Nocco said.

    Late Monday afternoon, Cobb Theatres issued the following statement:

    “We are deeply saddened by the events that occurred earlier today, and our thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families. The theatre is currently closed, and we are actively working with the sheriff’s office on this investigation. This was an isolated altercation between two guests that escalated unexpectedly. The safety, security and comfort of our guests and team members are always our top priorities, and we are truly heartbroken by this incident.â€
