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