Police in California have arrested a man who reportedly opened fire inside of a movie theater killing one person and seriously wounding another.
The incident was reported on Monday night during the showing of “The Forever Purge” in Corona, California.
Officials say 20-year-old Joseph Jimenez purchased a ticket to see the movie and at some point during or after the showing, opened fire inside of the theater before fleeing the scene.
18-year-old Rylee Goodrich and 19-year-old Anthony Barajas were both struck by bullets.
Police say Goodrich died at the scene, and Barajas is on life support at a local hospital.
Jimenez was later located at his home in El Cerrito where investigators found a firearm and additional evidence related to the movie theater crime scene and arrested him.
He has been charged with murder, attempted murder and robbery and is being held on a $2 million bail.
Authorities are calling it an unprovoked attack and are continuing investigate incident:
“It’s an unfortunate turn of events here,” said Mercado. “The public here are really looking for a motive. Right now, there is no motive. It’s an unprovoked attack.”
