The State

Two Sacramento theaters offered showings of the controversial movie "Colors," a day after a local shopping mall operator halted screenings because of gang-related violence. General Manager Duane Garrison of the Arden Fair Mall asked Monday that United Artists of San Francisco, owner of the Arden Fair 6 Cinemas, stop showing the movie. As they complied with that request, managers of the Sacramento Inn Cinema down the street announced they would show the film. The movie also is being shown at UA The Movies in suburban Citrus Heights. There had been no disturbance at either Sacramento theater, but on Sunday, David Dawson, 19, of Stockton, was fatally shot in the back while in line for the movie at a Stockton theater. Police said the car in which three men fled the shooting scene was found in Los Angeles. A suspect, Charles Vain Queen, 21, was being sought.
