According to KRQE, Padilla and Tenorio were at the theater seeing "No Hard Feelings." Tenorio and his wife were reportedly sitting in the seats that Padilla and his girlfriend reserved. Padilla allegedly confronted Tenorio, and a theater employee tried to break it up. Padilla reportedly threw a bucket of popcorn at the couple, and then he and Tenorio started fighting.
Padilla allegedly fired several shots, struck Tenorio, and fled the scene. Police found Padilla hiding in a bush near the theater’s emergency exit and he was taken to the hospital for a gunshot wound to the stomach.
The Albuquerque Journal reports witnesses in the theater saw a green laser prior to the shooting, and police later discovered a gun with a laser in the bushes where Padilla had hidden.
