Man arrested nearly six weeks after shooting teen inside movie theater

WASHINGTON, Pa. — Channel 11 is learning new details after a man was arrested Thursday following a fight and a shooting inside a Washington County movie theater.

Police said Chris Williams threw the first punch inside the theater, then pulled a gun out and pointed at his victim. And a criminal complaint Channel 11 obtained Thursday said multiple witnesses all agreed that Williams was the aggressor.

These charges against Williams, including harassment, aggravated assault and terroristic threats, come nearly six weeks after that shooting inside the Hollywood Movie Theater in Washington. Investigators said they needed more time to talk with witnesses who were there that night.

Williams is scheduled to be back in court May 22.

According to Pennsylvania State Police, the fight happened just before midnight inside the Regal Crown Center Stadium 14 at Washington Crown Center in North Franklin Township.
