SAN ANTONIO (WKOW) -- Sheriff's officials say a man opened fire in a San Antonio movie theater parking lot. He shot and injured one person, before an officer shot him inside the theater.

Bexar County sheriff's spokesman Louis Antu says, the incident started about 9:30 p.m. Sunday night. The suspect fired shots inside a nearby restaurant. It's not clear what led to the shooting.

Antu says the man headed toward the theater and shot a male in the lot. The age and condition of the victim has not yet been released. However, Antu says, his injuries do not appear life-threatening.

The gunman entered the theater. Antu says the man fired a shot but struck no one. An off-duty sheriff's deputy working security then shot the gunman.

The suspect was taken to a hospital and not immediately charged.
