21-year-old veteran commits suicide at Zombieland screening

Disturbing news today from the Chicago Tribune, which reports a 21-year-old veteran killed himself after an altercation with theater employees in Muncie, Ind. According to the article, the man was asked for ID to see the R-rated film Zombieland, and the scene escalated from there.

Unsurprisingly, police say the man—who told theater employees he killed 18 people while in the military—had been drinking. Surprisingly, one of the man's companions gave him a handgun (!) just before he shot himself in the head.
