One person was transported to the hospital following a shooting at the AMC theater at Concord Mills Mall, according to the Concord Police Department. The suspect remains on the loose. 

The shooting incident occurred around 6 p.m. Sunday, March 24 at 8421 Concord Mills Boulevard.

As officers arrived at the scene, they located a man with a gunshot wound. His injuries did not look to be life-threatening, they said. 

An employee at the theater told FOX 46 Charlotte" People were running out of theater 11 which was showing the new movie "Us" before a man was seen in the lobby with a gunshot wound to the leg."

According to police, the incident was a result of a dispute over seating in the theater and was not an active shooter situation. It is believed that the suspect and the victim did not know each other. 

A FOX 46 Charlotte viewer was in the theater at the time of the shooting and said "The movie had only been playing for 15 minutes before a shot rang out and the theater went black." 

The suspect is described as a black male with short dreadlocks, wearing a black and white striped shirt and was accompanied by a black female. No arrests have been made at this time.
