A woman was shot in the shoulder while watching the Michael Bay film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi in Renton, Washington. The 40-year-old is in serious condition, but is said to be improving. The shooting is suspected to be accidental, and the shooter and victim were not known to each other.

Witnesses say the 29-year-old man was intoxicated when he entered the theater, and was fumbling with his gun during the film when it went off. He then allegedly left the theater calmly, and briefly entered a nearby restaurant, where he again fumbled with his gun.

The shooter’s father later called 911, describing the incident as accidental, and saying his son wanted to turn himself in.

A witness in the theater said of the gunshot, “There were a lot of gunshots going on in the movie, but this was louder than everything else.” The film is based on the attack on the US diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya on Sept. 11, 2012.
