21-year-old Joshua Allen, of Lynn, Indiana was getting ready to go to the movies on Christmas Eve. He was in his car in the parking lot of AMC Theaters when he decided his concealed weapon holster needed adjusting. He took his Glock handgun out of the holster to make the adjustment and when he went to pick the gun back up he unintentionally fired it. The bullet went through the muscle in his lower calf.
He was taken to the hospital and treated for non life-threatening injuries.
Allen has a license to carry a concealed weapon. News reports did not mention what movie Allen was seeing that he felt the need to enter the public theater with a loaded, hidden handgun.
