Police rushed to the scene not knowing if they were responding to a mass shooting.

“It was quite a relief when we got to the theater and found out it was a possible accidental discharge and not someone actually shooting individuals inside the theater,” Sonora Police Chief Mark Stinson said.

Responding officers quickly learned the shooter was an off-duty corrections officer.

“He tells us that he’s walking up an aisle looking for a seat in the theater, while doing so he was adjusting his off-duty holster and somehow the strap came undone and the firearm discharged,” Stinson said.
