A woman was hospitalized after getting accidentally shot during a Thursday night screening of Michael Bay's 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.
According to reports, the suspect appeared to be intoxicated as he fled the Regal Cinema in Seattle suburb Renton after the shooting.
The 29-year-old suspect's father called 911 shortly after to turn him in, and he surrendered to officers at his home.

The gun wielder told police that he had been drinking and accidentally dropped the handgun — which struck the woman in the upper torso after it went off.
The 40-year-old woman was rushed to Harborview Medical Center in critical condition, but later upgraded to stable.
David Leibman of the Renton Police Department told reporters:
"We have witnesses that say he came into the theater and appeared intoxicated. He went in and took a seat in theater No. 9 and was fumbling with a pistol when it went off and struck someone sitting in front of him."
The shooter has not yet been identified, but he is currently in custody and could face a number of charges.
