Renton Theater Shooter Says it ‘Was Accidental’
Last night Washington State was on edge after hearing about another theater shooting in Renton last night. Now it seems the incident was an accident according to the shooter who says he didn't mean for the gun to go off. Reports say a man who appeared to be intoxicated fumbled with a gun, dropped it, and accidentally shot a woman next to him in the theater. The man and woman reportedly do not know each other before the incident.
After the gun when off, the man left the scene, went home and called the authorities and told them it was an accident. The woman is getting care at Harborview Medical Center and her condition has been improved from "critical to serious and she is expected to recover".
