    The suspects involved in the fight and the suspect who fired the shot fled the scene.

    The employee sustained a minor, non-life threatening wound to the arm and was transported to a local hospital.

    Deputies immediately set up a perimeter around the area and began searching for suspects. At this time, all suspects are still outstanding.

    No additional injuries were reported.

    The movie theater remained open following the shooting, with certain areas roped off for investigation. One screening was stopped because it was close to the section of the theater where the victim was shot.
