A 21-year-old man was in serious but stable condition today at the Shock-Trauma Unit in Baltimore after he was shot in the chest last night inside a movie at Golden Ring Mall, Baltimore County police said.
According to Officer Scott Harclerode of the White Marsh District, Clinton Anderson Jr., of the 1600 block of E. 33rd St. in the city, and his cousin had left one movie in the mall in the 6400 block of Rossville Blvd. and were standing in line for another movie when the cousin asked a man standing nearby for the time.
Harclerode said Anderson and his cousin then entered the movie and took seats several rows apart.
About 9:55 p.m., Anderson got up from his seat and was walking back to his cousin to ask if he wanted to sit with him when a man armed with a handgun stepped out from a partition behind the last row of seats and shot Anderson in the left chest, Harclerode said.
