According to police, almost three years to the day after the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado, a gunman opened fire inside a theatre killing two and wounding nine others last night in Lafayette, Louisiana before taking his own life.
Reports say authorities rolice received a call about the shooting at The Grand 16 Theatre in Lafayette at approximately 7:30 p.m. and the attack occurred during the 7 p.m. screening of the comedy “Trainwreck,” when “an older white man” stood up and began shooting, witness Katie Domingue said. About 100 people were in the theater at the time of the attack.
Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said the shooting was contained to one theater room. A motive for the attack is not known at this time.
The gunman had been trying to leave the theater with others when responding officers entered, Craft said. The suspect then fired the shot that claimed his life.
