2 shot in movie theater in Midtown Atlanta
ATLANTA, GA - Atlanta police are investigating a shooting inside a movie theater in the city's Midtown neighborhood that left two people hospitalized in stable condition.
Atlanta police spokesman John Chafee said in an email that a group of people were attending a movie release party at the Midtown Art Cinema Tuesday night and an argument led to gunfire.
Chafee says an off-duty officer working at the theater heard the gunshots. A woman was shot in her leg and a man was shot in his buttocks. Chafee says no arrests have been made.
The shooting at about 10:30 p.m. came hours after an announcement that another Atlanta theater would show "The Interview," a political satire film on North Korea that prompted backlash and a cyberattack on Sony Pictures Entertainment. Midtown is not screening that film.
