Coroner called after movie theater shooting in York, PA

Police are investigating a shooting that happened at a York, Pennsylvania, Regal Cinemas on Dec. 2. The coroner was notified about the shooting.

YORK, Pa. — At least one person was fatally shot and another injured after a shooting at a Pennsylvania movie theater Monday night, authorities said. 

Two victims were found suffering from gunshot wounds when police arrived at the Regal Cinemas in the West Manchester Town Center shopping complex just after 10:15 p.m, according to the West Manchester Township Police Department. 

Both victims were transported to a nearby hospital. A coroner was notified about the shooting and confirmed that at least one person was pronounced dead at 10:55 p.m. It’s unclear if the coroner was called to the hospital or the scene. 

The other victim survived, but the coroner is not commenting on the condition of that person.

The identity of the man that was fatally injured will be released later Tuesday and an autopsy will be scheduled some time this week. 

No additional details have been released at this time.

The football federation in Chile has announced it is to cancel the rest of the season due to security concerns following weeks of anti-government protests.

All matches were suspended when the violence began six weeks ago.

The six remaining fixtures have all been cancelled and no teams will be relegated or promoted.

Universidad Católica, who were leading the championship by 13 points, have been declared the champions.

Their opponents have agreed to abandon the rest of the season and give Universidad Católica a 14th league title.

The World Rally Championship motor race Rally Chile has also been cancelled due to the unrest.

Media captionChile protests continue into second month

It was scheduled to take place in April, the month in which the government has agreed to hold a referendum on a change to the country’s constitution.

What are the protests about?

The protests were triggered by an announcement that public transport fares would rise in the capital, Santiago.

Demonstrations quickly spread across the country and grew into a general revolt against inequality, the high price of health care and poor funding for education.

Harsh repression by the security forces further stoked the anger of those protesting as did the response by President Sebastián Piñera, who declared a state of emergency and said the country was “at war”.

At least 26 people have been killed and hundreds injured in the unrest.

Two weeks ago, President Piñera agreed to a referendum asking Chileans whether they want to introduce changes to the constitution.

The current constitution came into force in 1980 when the country was still under military rule.

Mark Levin: Ex-DNC consultant Chalupa should have been called at impeachment hearings

Mark Levin says a former Democratic National Committee consultant and onetime Clinton White House staffer should have been a key witness during the House Intelligence Committee’s impeachment hearings.

During a special solo edition of “Life, Liberty & Levin” airing Sunday at 8 p.m. ET, Levin pointed to part of a 2017 Politico report on alleged “Ukrainian efforts to sabotage Trump.”

“A Ukrainian-American operative who was consulting for the DNC met with top officials in the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington in an effort to expose ties between Trump, top campaign aide Paul Manafort and Russia, according to people with direct knowledge of the situation” Levin said, quoting journalist Kenneth Vogel, who now writes for The New York Times.

Levin said Republicans on the House Intelligence Committee had asked to have the operative, Alexandra Chalupa, testify during the hearings. However, the request was shot down by Committee Chairman Adam Schiff, D-Calif.


“She should have been called as a witness to figure out exactly what her role is,” he said. “There are a number of articles about this woman and what she was doing with the DNC, the Hillary Clinton campaign, the State Department and, by the way, met several times at the White House with the so-called whistleblower.”

Levin said Schiff’s reticence to hear publicly from Chalupa is a symptom of his wider refusal to hear from a number of witnesses considered key by the Republican minority.

“We’re not allowed to ask about her,” he said. “We’re not allowed to ask about the whistleblower. We’re not allowed to ask about Hunter Biden.”

Instead, Levin remarked, Schiff’s Democratic majority was content to “bring in bureaucrats who don’t know a damn thing to begin with.”


During the past week’s hearings, however, Chalupa came up at least once in Republican questioning of former U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch.

Republican counsel Steve Castor asked Yovanovitch about the reports Levin referenced claiming that during the 2016 race, Chalupa had meetings with officials at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington to discuss incriminating information about people associated with the Trump campaign.

Yovanovitch said she did not believe she knew Chalupa. Further, when asked if she tried to investigate those interactions, she maintained this would have been handled in the U.S. since the meetings took place in Washington, not in Ukraine.

The questioning drew a Twitter response from Chalupa, who said she has never been to Ukraine and was not involved in opposition research against then-candidate Donald Trump.

“For the record: I have never worked for a foreign government,” she tweeted. “I have never been to Ukraine. I was not an opposition researcher. In 2008, I knew Manafort worked for Putin’s interests in Ukraine. I reported my concerns about him to the NSC in 2014 & sounded the alarm bells in 2016.”
