Police say they have arrested a man accused of shooting a woman in a Washington state movie theater, who later called authorities to surrender.

Police responded to a shooting call shortly after 8 p.m. Thursday at Regal Cinemas at The Landing in Renton.

Investigators say a man appearing to be intoxicated fumbled with a gun and shot the woman during a showing of the movie "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi."

Investigators believe the man and woman do not know each other.

Police say the man left the theater after the shooting, returned to his home and called 911, saying he had dropped his gun and the shooting was accidental.

Harborview Medical Center spokeswoman Susan Gregg said Thursday night the woman's condition was upgraded from critical to stable.
