A woman who was shot in a Renton movie theater last year is suing the gunman.
KOMO-TV reports the lawsuit filed Tuesday in King County Superior Court claims Dane Gallion “was negligent in many respects” when he shot Michelle Mallari inside the Renton theater.
Gallion told police he dropped his gun and it went off Jan. 21, 2016, during a showing of “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.” Documents say a Mallari’s collarbone was shattered by a bullet.
Gallion pleaded guilty to assault in September 2016 and was released from jail in July.
