50 cent
A man was shot and killed this weekend during a screening of the new 50 Cent movie ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’' in Pensylvania.

Sheldon Flowers, 30, was shot three times at the Loews Cineplex at West Homestead, near Pittsburgh, after an argument broke out between three people.

Flowers, who died in hospital, was carrying an unregistered gun without a permit, according to police.

He had been in the cinema watching a screening of ‘Get Rich Or Die Tryin’', and became involved in an argument in the toilets. It is not known which film the other three men had seen, according to the BBC.

Flowers and one other man had fired shots, but the police have no suspects.

50 Cent, real name Curtis Jackson, told the ABC network: “I feel for the victim’s family in this situation. But you know, these weren’t kids. This was a 30-year-old man who had a dispute with three other guys.”

The cinema have removed the film from their programme while the police investigation continues.
