16-year-old arrested after shooting gun outside Bradenton movie theater

A 16-year-old turned himself in last week after deputies say he fired a gun outside the AMC Bradenton 20 movie theater in August.

According to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, around 7:23 p.m. on Aug. 27, deputies responded to reports of a fight at the movie theater. Deputies say they heard rumors of gun shots having been fired inside the theater

Deputies discovered that a gun was fired in the parking lot and told moviegoers that reports of an active shooter situation were unfounded. Investigators say no one was injured.
