SAN DIEGO — Police shot and critically wounded a man Saturday suspected of chasing his girlfriend with a handgun across a shopping mall parking lot before ducking into a movie theater where officers confronted him.

The shooting occurred inside the Reading Cinemas theater in northern San Diego around 3:50 p.m., and no moviegoers or officers were hurt, officer David Stafford said.

He said officers went to an outdoor shopping center, where the theater is located, in response to a domestic violence call. Police did not immediately release other details.
