SAN DIEGO (AP) - Police shot and critically wounded a man Saturday afternoon suspected of chasing his girlfriend with a handgun across a shopping mall parking lot before ducking into a crowded movie theater.

Officer David Stafford says no moviegoers were injured in the shooting in the Reading Cinemas theater in northern San Diego. U-T San Diego reports the shooting occurred during a screening of "Les Miserables."

A San Diego Fire-Rescue Department dispatcher said the suspect was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

The owner of a business next to the theater said officers told him the armed man chased his girlfriend across a parking lot.

It was the second shooting at a San Diego County movie theater in as many days.

Authorities say a concession worker suffered an arm injury when a shot fired outside a San Marcos movie theater went through the lobby window and struck her.
