    The dispatcher said the shooting was reported at 1:13 p.m. at the theater at 901 Bell Road. The theater is Carmike Hickory 8, according to address records.

    At about 1:50 p.m., police scanner traffic indicated it was still an active situation. About 2 p.m., police scanner traffic indicated the suspect may have left a backpack inside the theater that has to be checked by police.

    Extra police patrols have reportedly been assigned at Bellevue 8 movie theater.

    Me either! I'm just glad he was shot dead instead of being in a long and lengthy expensive trial like the Colorado theater killer! :gaah:
