Shooting at Edwards San Marcos Movie Theater Leaves One Person Injured

The incident was reported at 9:08 p.m. Friday at Edwards San Marcos Stadium 18. Officials reported a female was taken to the hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

A gunshot fired from outside a movie theater in San Marcos Friday night struck an employee inside the theater, according to the Sheriff’s Department. The female employee was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover after the bullet struck her in an arm, said Sgt. David Schaller.

Authorities suspect the shot was fired from the parking lot of Edwards San Marcos Stadium 18 at 1180 W. San Marcos Blvd. just after 9 p.m., shattering a glass door facing a parking lot, according to Schaller. Investigators said it does not appear that the theater was the intended target.

Gang detectives from the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station responded and are conducting the investigation.

Jimmy, the Liberal media has no advantage to gun control, but the NRA and the firearms industry are making out in millions, and you are their gullible promoters.

"When governments fear the people, there is liberty," reads the quotation. "When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government." BOGUS STATEMENT, check it out.
