ROSEVILLE, Minn. (WCCO) — Police were called to the AMC movie theater at Rosedale Center after two people were pistol-whipped following a movie screening.

According to Roseville Police, the incident began with one of the two victims, a 21-year-old male who officers say was very intoxicated, began talking loudly during the movie.

After the movie finished at about 11:30 Thursday evening, the man left the theater with two women. The three were confronted by someone who showed a gun.

One of the two women ran away, and the suspect hit both the man and the other woman, who is 18 years old, with the gun.

There haven’t been any arrests in the case. Police did not release any information or descriptions of the suspect.

    What detailed, insightful reporting.

    In other news, some guy allegedly did something wrong and was possibly arrested, according to some guy who heard about it from some other guy.

      Jon-This is not a television show, it’s real life, so stop trying to make the connection. The police release the information, and a writer gives us the details.
      If you wanted a first hand account, then whip our your time machine and find out for yourself.

      If you can’t report more on the perp, at least tell us what the movie was.

  2. RightUnite says:

    So glad to hear there was a good outcome here!

  3. Reporting live says:

    Police said the man ordered a medium popcorn with butter and a larger soda.. The kind of soda he ordered… is still unknown. Back to you Jeff

  4. Joe says:

    Why even print such a bad story with no information.

  5. Attitude Adjuster says:

    Guess what…something happened, if you know anything, tell us so we can tell you. I hate that theater btw.

  6. Just Sayin says:

    The Rosedale movie theater is now a gang warzone. Better to stay away.

  7. Victim Du Jour says:

    I take it you hear people talking during the movie at that theater.

  8. Mr. Mark says:

    let these thug gang bangers shoot each other, fine by me, just hope their aim is good as to not harm innocent bystanders

  9. Ferris Lind says:

    this is a deflection of the news that the Vikings have no clue what there doing

  10. Louis Munn says:

    I thought Minneapolis was bad, who knew!

  11. Al says:

    When you have thugs like this running around at family businesses, I think it’s time to put more police on the streets. Oh wait, can’t do that. Budget cuts to balance the budget so no more money to cities. They have to cut someplace.
    Can’t go to Maplewood Bowl because of the Hmong gangs in THAT area. Now you have gangs doing this at Rosedale. Hey Republicans, great idea with the budget you have.
    How about this? We average out what the percentage is for the average Minneaotan. Then wipe out the differant levels we have and everyone pays the same percentage no matter what you make. Include that on CEO’s bonuses AND profit sharing. We could balance the budget on just the CEO’s wages.

    1. pat says:

      Al feel free to hire off duty police, for both the theatre and the bowling alley.

    2. Stanley says:

      Hey Al,

      How bout we cut social welfare programs, so like “most” people would be to tired to go to a movie from 10-midnight. With that money we could use it to provide for this police state you want.

    3. Clarence says:

      Al, thugs are thugs regardless of the economy or whether one is a big liberal or republican. Individual people make bad choices and should be held accountable for them, but this is the great liberal state of Minnesota and justice around here seems rare.

  12. Al says:

    What I forgot to mention is we average out what the percentage of income tax they are paying.

    1. Stanley says:


      In that case you want the top half to pay nothing like the bottom half?! Who’s going to pay for big government then? Or do you mean average out as in you want the top 20% to pay like the upper middle 30% does? Because the bottom HALF PAYS NOTHING!

  13. Bobo says:

    (**&%&$ GUN %&?^$%%*^ GUN ~@)^$%&(+ GUN *%%$ GUN *#$&? )*{#*)((^^&)(* No one charged or information given at this time.

  14. swerver says:

    I drink as much as any1, but im guessing this drunk had it coming, some1 actually said wow i thought minneapolis was bad. this person is braindead, in Minneapolis he would have been shot, who cares

  15. Al says:

    Chimp Cravaak is stupid

    1. Get a clue says:

      Al is stupid

  16. Clarence says:

    “The Naked Gun” was showing at the time and the police went in to watch the movie. They got free coffee and stuff like that, but were not pistol-whipped when they left the theatre.

  17. ibettheydid says:

    I’m guessing the city of Roseville just placed an order of ” Gur-B-Gone “

  18. shut up and watch the movie says:

    That will teach him to shut up the next time he is in at the movies

    1. fred says:

      I agree. but why wait until the movie`s over to pistol whip these morons?

  19. shut up and watch the movie says:

    That will teach him to shut up the next time he is at the movies

    Hey.. I work at Rosedale Mall.. And there where rumers going around in my work today about all the extra cops, and the cop tower in the parking lot.. So frankly, as short and lacking in detail this is… It sets my mind at rest a bit.. I was hearing some stuff that had me scared, especcialy cause cops chased someone into my work today… So I feel a lot better about going to work tomorrow.

  21. reality check says:

    first off nobody was talking an the movie, the guy was just jealous in pulled the gun out on us. so there fore get your stories straight people nobody deserves to be hit with a gun in beaten in ends up in the hospital.

  22. Michele Harris says:

    And to think this happened in Roseville and not North Minneapolis. Crime these days happens everywhere, it just is emphasized in certain communities than others.

    1. Odin says:

      Fortunately in this case the criminals have already been punished. Gotta admire the restraint of the guy to wait until after the movie.

  23. victim says:

    what are you dumb people talking about? the guy has not been caught yet! and only one person git hit by the gun, in the other got punched. you guys are disrespectful! and again nobody was talking in the MOVIE. everbody was laughing cause it was a funny movie, called Madea big happy family.
