(NEW HAVEN, Conn.) -- With movie-goers still on edge following last month's shooting at a Colorado movie theater, police in New Haven say they arrested a man carrying a loaded handgun at a local movie theater on Tuesday night.
Police were called to Criterion Cinemas on Temple Street around 10 p.m. after patrons spotted a man with a gun tucked into his waistband at the location. Approximately 20 officers responded to the specific movie theater where about a dozen people were waiting to see the movie The Dark Knight Rises -- the same movie that was showing when the Colorado mass killings occurred.
Officials said with guns drawn, officers located the suspect and ordered him to put his hands up. When he allegedly failed to comply, he was taken into custody by force. Police said they recovered a handgun in the man's possession, for which he had a permit.
The suspect -- identified as 46-year-old Sung Hwang -- is charged with breach of peace and interfering with police.
On July 20, a dozen people were killed and 58 others were injured when a gunman opened fire at a movie theater in Aurora, Colorado.
