Police are looking for a man who opened fire inside a crowded Buckhead movie theater and have broadcast video footage of the suspect in hopes that the public can help find him.

Monday night around 10:45 p.m., Atlanta Police officers were called to the AMC Phipps Plaza 14 theater at 3500 Peachtree Road. An argument over movie seats quickly devolved, and one man was shot, clearing the room full of movie-goers settling in to watch the new “Spider-Man” feature, witnesses told police.

Emergency dispatch calls outline the chaos that ensued once gunfire erupted during the film.

“There was one shot and everybody just kind of ran,” an out-of-breath female caller told an emergency dispatcher in 9-1-1 audio released by Atlanta Police.

Theater manager Jevon Thomas told police he heard the shooting and saw the victim run out into the theater lobby holding his stomach.

“I have an active shooter here, please hurry,” Thomas said during the call with a 9-1-1 operator. “One of my guests has been shot, please send somebody.”

He could be overheard telling staffers to stay sheltered in place.

“Don’t come out,” Thomas told movie employees, then said to the dispatcher, “People are running, and I hear gunshots. Me and my staff are hiding.”

But amid the pandemonium, the suspected shooter calmly escaped, according to witnesses and surveillance footage provided by police.

“Whoever did the shot, they’re walking out now,” an unidentified male caller told a 9-1-1 officer.

One of the videos police investigators have made public shows a tall, slender black man with a black puffer coat, white hooded sweatshirt, jeans a ski mask and white sneakers emerge from an elevator in the theater and walk out of the frame in a composed manner, looking at his phone.

Close behind, he is trailed by a black woman with long black hair, carrying a large pink bag and wearing a grey beanie, a light blue puffer coat, blue or gray jeans or leggings and light blue and white sneakers.

The victim, identified as Re Quan Kentrell Otey, was taken to an area hospital but was described as alert and conscious when officers arrived after the shooting.

His date, Miranda Renae Ross, told officers she and Otey were watching the movie when the shooter arrived with the woman he was described leaving with, according to the police incident report.
