Salina police investigate accidental shooting in theater (VIDEO)


A Salina man is taken to the hospital after shooting himself in the leg. It happened inside a movie theatre at Central Mall during a showing Friday night. Police say the shooting was accidental.

Witnesses it happened 45 minutes into the movie. “At first what popped into my mind was that someone popped a bag of candy or something and goofing off or something,” said Heather Myers, who was inside the theatre when the shooting happened.

Kansas’s new gun law that allows gun owners to conceal and carry without a permit went into effect July 1.
