A viewing of The Forever Purge in Corona, California turned deadly on Monday night when a shooter opened fire on moviegoers, killing one and critically injuring another, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The shooting occurred at the Regal Edwards Corona Crossings RPX theater on Monday night. Police were called at 11:45 PM, where they found a 19-year-old man who was taken to the hospital in critical condition. An 18-year-old woman died at the scene.
Corona Police Department Cpl Tobias Kouroubacalis confirmed to THR that the victims were watching The Forever Purge when the shooting occurred. The fifth film in the Purge franchise escalates the premise of the original film–a 12-hour period in which all crime becomes legal–with Purgers trying to take the event past its 12-hour bounds.
