York, PA

West Manchester Township Police say the investigation into the shooting at the Regal Cinemas at the West Manchester Town Center is in the early stages. At approximately 11:17PM police responded to the Regal Cinemas for a shooting inside the complex. The incident occurred inside, in a theater. Police say a single shooter was involved in the incident and a male victim was shot, as well as, a female victim. Both victims were taken by ambulance to York Hospital where the male victim was pronounced dead and the female victim was treated for her injuries.

Authorities say the suspect fled the movie theater complex after the shooting occurred. At this point in the investigation police do not believe the incident is a random attempt at a mass casualty event. Evidence and investigatory information indicates that the shooting was not random and there is no indication that there is any additional danger to patrons of the center or other commercial areas at the Town Center.
