NITRO, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia authorities say several people fled a Nitro movie theater after one customer threatened to shoot another.

Cpl. B.D. Humphreys of the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office says one witness told him the Friday night incident made him think about the 2012 shooting that left 12 dead in an Aurora, Colorado, theater.

Moviegoers told deputies that a disruptive man threatened to shoot another audience member who told him to be quiet. Customers reported the threat to a security guard as they left.

Employees stopped the movie, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, while deputies arrested 52-year-old Tod Austiin Ingram of Cross Lanes. Humphreys says Ingram was unarmed.

Ingram was being held Saturday on a felony charge of making terroristic threats. It was unclear whether he had a lawyer.
