San Diego (US): Police shot and critically wounded a gunman in a movie theater as more than a dozen moviegoers ducked for cover on the floor.

No moviegoers or officers were hurt in the shooting inside Reading Cinemas Carmel Mountain in northern San Diego, officer David Stafford said. It was the second shooting at a San Diego County movie theater in as many days.

Police evacuated moviegoers until two officers spotted him in a theater with about 15 others. McManus said the man initially complied with officers` order to put his hands up, but then he put them back in his lap and brandished a handgun.

He said one of the officers opened fire.

The theater`s manager told Krongard the shooting occurred during a screening of "Les Miserables."
