SEATTLE — The man suspected of accidentally shooting a woman in a Renton movie theater was charged Tuesday with third-degree assault.

Bail for Dane Gallion, 29, of Newcastle, was increased to $100,000 from $25,000. His arraignment was set for Feb. 4.

Police reports said Gallion brought his gun into the theater last Thursday night because he worried about recent mass shootings in public places. Gallion told police his gun accidentally went off in his pocket.The bullet passed right through the chair in front of him and hit 40-year-old Michelle Mallari in her shoulder.

“The victim suffered a shattered clavicle, and the bullet remains in her shoulder, as doctors were concerned that it would cause additional damage to remove it,” the King County Prosecutor’s Office said in court documents.

Mallari was discharged from Harborview Medical Center on Sunday evening.
