A gunshot fired from outside a movie theater in San Marcos Friday night struck an employee inside the theater, according to the Sheriff’s Department. The female employee was taken to a hospital and is expected to recover after the bullet struck her in an arm, said Sgt. David Schaller.
Authorities suspect the shot was fired from the parking lot of Edwards San Marcos Stadium 18 at 1180 W. San Marcos Blvd. just after 9 p.m., shattering a glass door facing a parking lot, according to Schaller. Investigators said it does not appear that the theater was the intended target.
Gang detectives from the San Marcos Sheriff’s Station responded and are conducting the investigation.
