50 Cent saddened by fatal shooting at 'Get Rich' theater

November 12, 2005|From Associated Press

HOMESTEAD, Pa. — 50 Cent said he was saddened by the fatal shooting at a theater where his movie "Get Rich or Die Tryin' " was playing.

"I feel for the victim's family in this situation," 50 Cent said on ABC's "The View" on Friday. "But you know, these weren't kids. This was a 30-year-old man [who] had a dispute with three other guys."

Shelton Flowers, 30, was shot at least three times Wednesday night after he got into an argument with another man inside a Loews multiplex just east of Pittsburgh.

Allegheny County police said Flowers had just watched 50 Cent's movie and got into a confrontation with three men in the restroom.

A fight ensued, and it spilled out into the concessions area, where Flowers was shot, police said.

No one has been arrested.

It was not known what movie the three men had seen, but John McCauley, vice president of marketing for Loews Corp., said the company decided to stop showing "Get Rich" at the theater during the investigation.
