An 18-year-old woman was killed, and a 19-year-old man was injured when gunfire erupted at a Regal theater around 11:45 p.m., according to the report.

The circumstances around the violence about 45 miles southeast of Los Angeles are unclear, and the victims were not identified, according to the newspaper.

Investigators are trying to figure out if a random shooter escaped the theater, or if the man or woman were responsible for the gunfire in a murder-suicide, the article said.

“They’re still going through the theater and looking for evidence that would send us in one direction or another,” Corona Police Cpl. Tobias Kouroubacalis told the paper. “We’re working in the blind.”
