Just three days after 12 people were killed and dozens more injured by a shooter at a Colorado movie theater, Greenville Police said a suspicious man showed up at two local movie theaters on Sunday with guns and ammo in his car.
The unidentified man, reported to be from Mecklenburg, N.C., showed up at the Regal Hollywood 20 theaters on Woodruff Road, and later at the Cherrydale Cinema on North Pleasantburg Drive, according to a report by WYFF.
The man, who told officers he was making a documentary, reportedly had two legally registered firearms in his vehicle along with ammunition. Theater management at both theaters asked the man to leave.
Authorities said they don't believe the man, who was "very cooperative" with theater security and law enforcement, intended to harm anyone, but used "poor judgment and poor timing" so soon after the Aurora, Colo. killings.
