Gunman Wounds One Outside Texas Movie Theater

A gunman opened fire in a San Antonio movie theater Sunday evening, wounding a man in the facility’s parking lot before he was shot by an off-duty sheriff’s deputy who was working security, the Associated Press reports. 

The gunman first fired shots inside a nearby restaurant before making his way toward the movie theater. He fired one shot inside the theater after wounding the victim in the parking lot, but no one was harmed. He was then shot by the off-duty sheriff’s deputy.

A spokesman for the Bexar (bayr) County sheriff said the victim’s injuries are not life-threatening.
