Man Shot Dead After Eating Popcorn Loudly During 'Black Swan'

Police in Latvia have arrested a 27-year-old man for shooting an audience member during the closing credits of 'Black Swan'.

Witnesses at the theater tell Latvian news agency Leta that the incident happened after an argument arose over how loudly the deceased man was eating his popcorn.

The younger man, a recent police academy graduate who holds a doctorate in law, then brandished a firearm and shot and killed the older man.

Stunned audience members promptly called the police and was "overpowered by other audience members until cops arrived."

The 42-year-old died of his wounds at hospital in the Latvian capital of Riga. The shooting happened at the Forum multiplex cinema, one of the largest in the city.
