Man Murdered At Black Swan

So sad.

In Latvia, there was an altercation at a screening of the Natalie Portman starred Black Swan that ended in a man's death.

After the credits started to roll, an argument began over the volume of a man's popcorn chewing, resulting in him being shot to death.

According to the reports:

"Police said they had arrested a 27-year-old man suspected of shooting a 42-year-old fellow audience member who later died of his wounds.

The conflict took place as the credits rolled during a screen of the Oscar-nominated film "Black Swan", according to police in the Baltic state.

Witnesses told the Latvian news agency Leta that it arose over how loudly the deceased man was eating his popcorn."

Gun violence in Latvia is also somewhat low, making this not a very common occurrence at all.

This is terrible. We're so sad to hear that this has happened.

Our hearts go out to the loved ones of the man who lost his life.

    Actually, it was the killer who was eating popcorn loudly, the victim just asked him to stop being so rude, in the end they got into argument and the popcorn eater shot the other man whose daughter was also there. You should get your facts straight.

    I am so tired of spending $30.00 to go see a movie and have rude, loud people talking and eating loud. I don't condone violence but I can see how something like this can take place. The public is inconsiderate of others. Theaters should do a better job policing these annoying people and cracking down on imposing on others - it INCLUDE kids. People bringing babies and todlers to R rated films is also a violation on many levels.

    I'm sorry but that's hilarious

    I'm from Latvia and it's not funny at all. the real situation is that man who chewed popcorn loud was the shooter, he shot high rank bank employee, who had 4 children, and was attending the movie with his daughter :( , and the man just wanted to watch movie with his kid, and he just admonished shooter about loud chewing.

    Wow what is this world coming to. I can't believe so many people thought this was funny or agreed with the killer…though I do agree people are inconsiderate these days - I guess it's not just in the US.

  10. 10

    OMG :( thats ridiculous!!!

    Hate to say it, but loud chewing is just rude. Now, killing someone for complaining about it is a bit extreme, but c'mon. It's manners to chew with your damn mouth closed.

  12. 12

    Ummm….idiots who agree that someone deserved to die for chewing too loudly?? Yeah. The actual victim of death was the complainer. The guy who was chewing too loudly shot him….so don't complain about people chewing….

  13. ONIT says – reply to this


    Re: purple_indeed – Yes. The entire story is that the older guy complained about the loud popcorn eating while the film was shown and they seemingly settled teh argument. With the creditss on, the younger popcorn chewer shot the older guy who complained. It gets better. The shooter is a policeman.

    OMG You are SOOO funny !
    Do you really think what you're writing ? It's so pathetic ! You all want to shoot people who EAT LOUDLY ? Ok, it's rude, but killing someone is just horrible.
    I can't believe how many people find this funny…

    Thats why i never go to the movies… first… i cant stand the smell of sweaty carpet…i also cant stand the mass and their huge heads …plus i do not feel comfy enough…. then i am unable to comment the movie, pause it, eat what i want take a leak etc etc… and if the movie is boring ill never have my money and time back… so… i ffwd every crap i see and thats all…. tho i am not a popcorn fan .. seems like someone is a popcorn hater…. damn…if you are a pig when you eat stay at home.. but if you are a psycho u should do the same….. btw my mom loves to chew ice.. every single day.. specially summer days…. and i hate it..the noise is disturbing…. but shes still alive…. i guess im a great son… lol

    SERIOUSLY, those who said someone deserves to die from one single moment of eating popcorn in the theater are insane. I don't care if you were joking, it's still inappropriate to say. So do I have the right to kill people with bad odor now, just because their smell annoys me? Would it be funny if I shot you insane guys because your immorality and incapability to sympathize with a victim of murder disturbed me?

  17. 17

    Actually the shooter was loud and obnoxious and the victim just asked the guy politely to stop and that nut just pulled out the gun and killed him.The funny thing is that the killer was a police academy grad student and now is a lawyer and wrote couple books on a gun subject.Weird!

    Re: ONIT – not quite exact, the young shooter is lawyer.

  19. 19

    the world is CRAZY

  20. 20

    Some of you should feel ashamed. This is over a man that died because of this issue. That's insane!

  21. 21

    Perez you fucked up the story. It was the shooter who was eating popcorn.

  22. 22

    Okay this is just sick.
    The fact that some of you say things such as "good" and "finally someone does it" is appallig to me. Even if perez didn't get the story right, it's still disgusting that was the first thing some of you thought of after reading this. NO ONE should die for something as minuscule as asking someone to stop chewing loud. No one deserves to be murdered at all.

    I understand you were joking but honestly, this is real life, this actually happened. So while your making jokes, this guys four children, counting the daughter that watched the whole entire thing go down, are emotionally suffering.

    RIP to the man and his family and loved ones will be in my prayers.
