Movie Theater Suicide

Police said a 24-year-old man shot and killed himself early this morning during a movie screening at a Eugene theater.

About 10 people were seated in the Regal Cinema theater at Valley River Center when the man used a handgun to commit suicide midway through a showing of the film “Watchmen,” Eugene police spokeswoman Jenna LaBounty said.

The closest patrons were seated two rows in front of the man, who was a Eugene resident.

LaBounty said police were called to the theater just after midnight, after patrons reportedly heard a loud “popping sound” behind them. Investigators determined that the man died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

LaBounty said theater managers stopped the movie and refunded patrons’ money following the shooting


I didn't think Watchmen was that bad.
