MAN ACCIDENTALLY SHOOTS SELF IN NEVADA THEATER: SPARKS, Nev. (AP) — Police say a man accidentally shot himself in the buttocks at a Nevada movie theater during a showing of "The Bourne Legacy."

Police in Sparks, Nev., say the 56-year-old man's injuries are not life-threatening and no others were hurt.

Authorities say the man had a permit to carry a concealed firearm. The man told officers the gun fell from his pocket Tuesday night as he was adjusting himself in the seat and that it discharged when it dropped to the floor.

Authorities say the case will be sent to the city attorney for possible charges.

The incident comes less than a month after a shooting at a suburban Denver theater that left 12 dead and 58 injured.

MAN FIRES INSECT REPELLENT IN OREGON ROBBERY: ROSEBURG, Ore. (AP) — Police in Roseburg, Ore., say a man who robbed a restaurant was armed with a can of bug spray.

Sgt. Aaron Dunbar says the robber entered Elmer's Restaurant late Monday wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, gloves and a beanie atop a shoulder-length blond wig that was pulled partly across his face.

A bartender tried to bat away the can of insect repellent when the robber brandished it, but the employee got a direct spray to the face.

The robber grabbed money from a cash box behind the bar and fled. The amount of the take wasn't disclosed.
