Antioch theater shooter on psych drugs


In a press conference Wednesday night, authorities said it appeared Montano had “significant psychiatric or psychological issues.” Murfreesboro police also state his mother told them he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2006.
A man who entered an Antioch movie theater armed with a hatchet and airsoft pistol that looked like a real gun while carrying two bags was killed by Metro-Nashville police Wednesday afternoon.

Officers responded to the Carmike Hickory 8 theater on Bell Road within minutes of receiving calls shots were fired around 1:13 p.m. as they were working a nearby crash.

Vincente David Montano, 29, who was wearing a surgical mask and bought a ticket to enter the theater, reportedly began attacking people and spraying pepper spray during a showing of “Mad Max: Fury Road.” According to a preliminary estimate, around 8 people were inside the theater at the time.

Officers confronted Montano inside the theater, firing shots at him before he fled out back where he ultimately died.

In a press conference Wednesday night, authorities said it appeared Montano had “significant psychiatric or psychological issues.”

Metro police also said Montano was reported missing two days ago from Rutherford County on Aug. 3 by his mother who had not seen him since May 2015 in Illinois.

In the missing persons report, his addressed is listed as “homeless.” Murfreesboro police also state his mother told them he was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2006.

Both the hatchet and airsoft pistol Montano had with him were recovered by authorities at the scene.

His backpack was detonated by the bomb squad just before 4 p.m. as authorities were not comfortable opening it. The suspect also had a smaller satchel with him.

Police say a “hoax device” was found in Montano’s backpack and it posed no threat to the community. The second bag, a “parcel,” was left in the back of the theater.

Initial reports indicated the suspect was also seen in or near the Southeast Branch Library prior to the shooting, but police Chief Steve Anderson later said there was no information to indicate that.

According to Brian Haas with the Nashville Fire Department, three people sustained minor injuries from being pepper sprayed, reportedly by the assailant. They were a 58-year-old man, 53-year-old woman and 17-year-old girl.

One of those three also received a bruise on the arm, reportedly from a hatchet the suspect was carrying. No one was transported to a hospital.

Steven, the 58-year-old victim who chose to only release his first name, told media he is “eternally grateful for the Metro police department.”

Chief Anderson made a powerful statement Wednesday evening, saying “this is maybe the new normal.”

“And we can’t just shut down America. We can’t say we’re not going to theaters. We can’t say we’re not going to church. We carry on,” he added.

Spokesman Aaron said multiple lives were likely saved by the first officer who ran inside the theater.

Era stato ricoverato quattro volte in un centro psichiatrico Vincente David Montano, il 29enne che, armato di pistola ad aria compressa e accetta ha sparato in un cinema di Nashville prima di essere abbattuto dalla polizia. 

Lunedì era stata denunciata la sua comparsa. La sparatoria è avvenuta ad Antioch, in un multisala, e precisamente mentre sullo schermo proiettavano una film della serie "Mad Max". In prossimità del cinema c'erano degli agenti di polizia, che sono intervenuti. L'aggressore ha sparato colpendo uno di loro con la pistola ad aria compressa ferendone uno.

Un uomo è rimasto ferito in modo leggero dai colpi di accetta mentre due donne hanno riportato irritazioni procurate da uno spray al pepe, che l'uomo armato, un 51enne, aveva con se'. 

Due settimane fa tre persone erano state uccise e altre nove ferite in un cinema a Lafayette, in Louisiana, e tre anni fa 12 persone erano state falciate dalla follia di un uomo ad Aurora, in Colorado, durante la proiezione di un film della serie Batman.
