According to initial television reports, two are dead (possibly including the shooter) and six or more people are injured after a shooting in The Grand Theater in Lafayette, Louisiana during a screening the movie ‘Trainwreck’. From CBS News: “Multiple injuries were also reported by the Lafayette Daily Advertiser, but the severity of the injuries was unclear. There was no confirmation that a suspect was in custody. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said he was monitoring the situation.” Remember that the initial story changes significantly as time goes on in these situations. More as the story becomes clear.
UPDATE: From local paper theadvertiser.com:
Katie Domingue of Carencro was at the 7 p.m. showing of “Train Wreck” with her fiance’, Joshua Doggett. About 20 minutes into the movie, Domingue said, she heard a loud noise.
“We heard a loud pop we thought was a firecracker,” she said.
She saw “an older white man” standing up and shooting down, not in her direction.
“He wasn’t saying anything. I didn’t hear anybody screaming either,” Domingue said.
She heard about six shots, then she and Doggett ran to the nearest exit, leaving behind her shoes and purse.
SECOND UPDATE: Fox New now reports three dead including the shooter with eight transported to local hospitals. Once again, these situations are fluid and reports almost always change in these unfortunate situations. More as we receive it.
THIRD UPDATE: According to the local chief of police, the shooter, a white man in his 50s who used a handgun, committed suicide.
