Pennsylvania teen dies after being shot in movie theater in what police believe was a ‘targeted’ attack

Authorities say a man shot in a movie theater in eastern Pennsylvania over the weekend has died of his injuries and a suspect is being sought.

State police in Luzerne County said the victim was struck by gunfire in the arcade/lobby of the Regal Cinema next to the Laurel Mall in Hazle Township at about 8:15 p.m. Saturday. He was taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital Hazleton. Police said the shooter fled from the cinema and left the area.

Police said in an update that the victim, 19-year-old Luis Manuel Luna of Hazleton, died Sunday of his injuries.

Police said that although the shooting happened in a public place “where people were put in direct danger” they believe the victim was “specifically targeted” and called it an isolated incident.
