The woman shot in a Renton movie theater Thursday night is now in stable condition, according to a nursing supervisor at Harborview Medical Center.
The 40-year old victim suffered a bullet wound to the shoulder when an apparently intoxicated man accidentally fired his gun inside a theater playing “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.”
The woman’s condition was described as serious Friday morning.
Police say the alleged shooter, who is to appear in court Saturday, did not know the victim.
