SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Authorities say a San Antonio restaurant worker apparently upset when his girlfriend left him shot a random patron outside a theater before being wounded by an officer.

Bexar (bayr) County sheriff's Sgt. Raymond Pollard says the suspect will face charges of attempted capital murder of an officer and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

Pollard says the man worked at a Chinese restaurant but was off Sunday night. Pollard says the suspect, following the breakup, sent the woman a message saying he was going to the restaurant. The suspect arrived and chased a co-worker toward the nearby theater, shooting out the window of an arriving police car.

An off-duty officer followed the suspect into the theater and shot him. He's hospitalized in stable condition.

The patron was treated and released.
