Man pulls gun on father and son at Kentucky movie theater

A Kentucky man pulled a gun on a father and son Saturday after an incident inside a movie theater, officials said.

Paducah police officer Dana Davie told the West Kentucky Star that authorities were called to a Cinemark Theater at around noon. A man told Davie that he and his son were sitting behind another man during “Star Trek Beyond” and the boy was kicking the man’s seat in front of him.

Witnesses told the paper that the man got up cursed at the child and asked if he was going to continue to kick his seat. When the boy’s father got up and confronted the man, the two got into a fight and the man pulled out a gun.

Movie-goers began to panic and rushed toward the exit while theater employees escorted the gun-toting man from the theater and stood with him until officers arrived.

The man has yet to be identified.

Paducah police are seeking charges against the man and a McCracken County Attorney’s Office will decide Monday.
