Tom Billodeaux shot multiple times during screening of Les Miserables after Police Stormed the Movie theatre

Police shot and wounded an armed suspect who was hiding out in a movie theater in San Diego, sending theatergoers at a Saturday matinee of 'Les Miserables' diving for cover.

Officers say Tom Billodeaux, 20, of Escondido, California, pulled a handgun on them after they discovered sitting with 15 other people in the dark theater at Reading Cinemas Carmel Mountain.

San Diego police armed with assault rifles stormed the cinema and went theater-to-theater looking for Billodeaux after he allegedly threatened his girlfriend and a bystander with a pistol and then fled into the megaplex.
