Man Fearing Mass Shooting Brings Gun To Theater, Accidentally Shoots Woman: Cops


A man fearing mass shootings brought a gun into a Washington movie theater and accidentally shot a woman before running away, police said.

Dane Gallion, 29, told Renton police that he was “concerned about recent mass shootings in public places” when he armed himself Thursday for a showing of "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi,” according to a probable-cause statement obtained by the Seattle Times.

Instead of protecting himself, or anyone else, police say he created mass hysteria when he accidentally fired into the chair ahead of him, shooting a 40-year-old woman in her torso.

That victim, Michelle Mallari, was last reported as being in satisfactory condition.

Though police said Gallion has a concealed weapons permit, they said he appeared drunk at the time of the shooting and confessed to having taken Xanax for anxiety in the morning as well as having drank a 22-ounce beer.

After allegedly fleeing the Regal Cinema and tossing his handgun, police say it was Gallion’s father who called 911. He said that his son was upset after dropping his gun and seeing it discharged gun inside of a theater.


Seriously, this is why there should be standards for gun ownership. I'm all for the 2nd and gun ownership, but there IS such a thing as responsibility. These are the kinds of accidents we'll see more of if we keep letting everyone walk around with guns all the time. Plus this idiot's entire reason for carrying the gun was because he was scared of mass shootings...

Now before anyone tries to jump to conclusions about me, I'm not trying to label all gun owners as irresponsible like this; I just want some common sense brought into this debate. That's all. Even most gun owners can agree that not everyone should have a gun. This guy clearly shouldn't have had a gun. Plus his paranoia caused him to create a terrible situation. So we really have two problems on our hands. The mass hysteria around mass shootings coupled with irresponsible gun ownership.

As for the OP, the idiot should have the book thrown at him. Drinking and firearms don't mix well.

His life is now ruined over this. Prayers to the lady that's in critical condition.

This is why you don't walk around with 1 in the chamber IMO.
