Another victim was shot in the altercation and was taken to York Hospital, the York Dispatch reported. 
Witnesses told police that White had a verbal exchange with Bellaflores and a second man while he was headed to his seat.

"The two (suspects) converse with one another and then get up and move to different seats closer to the victim," charging documents state. "Shortly after that one of the two males gets up and heads toward the theater exit and the second gets up and goes to the back row of the theater where Andre White is seated, and shoots him."

Police say they are still looking for the second suspect involved in the shooting.
