Here is the story the locked thread talks about...

Linky Linky

(KDKA/AP) Homestead Allegheny County homicide detectives are looking for suspects in a deadly shooting last night at the Loews Cineplex at The Waterfront.

Officials say someone shot Shelton Flowers, 30, of Wilkinsburg, at least three times after an argument near the concession stand inside the movie theater.

Authorities shut down the 22-screen multiplex after the shooting.

Police were looking for witnesses to the shooting and didn't immediately charge anyone.

Meanwhile, police are boosting patrols near the theater from 6 p.m. until Midnight.

Police Chief Chris Deasy tells KDKA's Bob Allen, "We made a decision to have a total of four police officers from West Homestead patrolling the Loews Theater area... the parking lot, inside, wherever we can be seen."

The theater may even install metal detectors to check people for weapons as they enter.

Wednesday's shooting isn't the first problem for the popular entertainment-and-shopping complex just east of Pittsburgh.

Last Christmas, so many unruly teens jammed the lobby of the cineplex that the theater canceled eight shows and stopped selling tickets that night.

Later, the theater hired more security and then instituted a policy banning unsupervised teens and children at the
theater on popular moviegoing holidays like Easter and Christmas.

This is the same theatre that riot was at last year during Christmas!!! See this thread.

We just got a call from the DO today. Both of the Carmikes here in State College are hiring armed security Friday night and all day Saturday and Sunday. From what we've been told, the studio is paying for this. The security in a result of the shooting. Keep in mind, this is the middle of Central PA; county population about 100,000. If we have security, I'd think most places might consider it.
