Louisiana Theater Shooting: Gunman Opens Fire During ‘Trainwreck’ Screening
A gunman killed two people and wounded nine others after standing up and opening fire about 20 minutes into a movie in Lafayette, Louisiana, police said.
Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said the 58-year-old man used a handgun and took his own life when officers arrived at the scene within about a minute.
Dee Stanley, chief administrative officer of the city about 50 miles southwest of Baton Rouge, told MSNBC TV that some of the wounded were in “very critical” condition with life-threatening injuries.
The ages of the victims range from late teens to 60s, according to Craft.
