LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Police say an innocent bystander was wounded in a shooting outside a movie theater in southwest Little Rock.

Officer Steve Moore told reporters the man was wounded by stray gunfire about 10:30 p.m. Saturday when people in at least two vehicles apparently shot at each other in the parking lot of Rave Cinemas.

According to police, multiple bullet casings were found near the east entrance of the parking lot.

Witnesses stated they saw a black male near this location running back and forth firing a weapon. The male then got into a red Trailblazer or something similar and fled the scene.

No other injuries were reported.

Moore says the man is hospitalized in an undisclosed condition, but that his injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

No arrests have been announced and Moore said investigators are still trying to determine a motive for the shooting.
