Fight Erupts at ‘Dark Knight’ Screening

    Police officers are seen outside a movie theater screening “The Dark Knight Rises,” Friday, July 20, 2012 in New York. A gunman in a gas mask barged into a crowded Denver-area theater during a midnight premiere of the Batman movie on Friday, hurled a gas canister and then opened fire, killing 12 people and injuring at least 50 others in one of the deadliest mass shootings in recent U.S. history. NYPD commissioner Ray Kelly said the department was providing the extra security at theaters "as a precaution against copycats and to raise the comfort levels among movie patrons."

    Days after the Colorado shooting massacre, Dark Knight Rises moviegoers remain on the edge of their seats. Panic ensued at a screening outside Pittsburgh Sunday night when a fight broke out in the theater, prompting people in the audience to rush—and push and shove in the process—toward the exit doors. Local officials said the fight started in a bathroom, when a child bothered a man inside an occupied stall and the man then lost his cool with the child’s mother, ultimately punching her in the face. Someone shouted “Gun!” at one point, sending already anxious moviegoers into a tizzy. The man is receiving misdemeanor charges.
