A 15-year-old boy has been arrested in connection with the fatalshooting of Michael Price Jr., 18, at the AMC Loews Metreon movie theater in San Francisco on Sunday night, Sgt. Neville Gittens said Monday.
Shots rang out just after 7 p.m. in the lobby of the theater, at the intersection of Mission and Fourth streets, according to Gittens. Price was struck with numerous bullets and was transported to San Francisco General Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 7:30 p.m., Gittens said.
Police say they believe Price was shot following an argument with the suspect but that the shooting was not gang-related and that Price and the suspect did not know each other before the altercation.
Officers directing traffic near the theater heard the shots and responded to the scene, Gittens said. The officers obtained a description of the suspect and found him about a block away from the theater, according to Gittens.
The suspect is in custody and faces homicide and gun-related charges, Gittens said.
