Another copycat. Thanks “media”!
This nation is out of control. I am voting myself off the island.
Wow. I have been to that theatre. Awaiting more details.
Mother Mary Frances! Have people lost their ever-lovin’ minds??? Good freaking grief!
City Marshal Brian Pope has confirmed for The Daily Advertiser that six people were injured in a shooting Thursday night at the Grand Theatre.
The shooter then turned the gun on himself, Pope said, and is dead.
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.
No! Not again!
God be with all the victims.
allegedly, old wite guy - begin search for ties to Tea Party in 3..2..1.
Its either black gangs, an ADD/autistic drug white boy on antidepressants, or a moslem.
Lay your bets,,,
Just a guess that ex went to the movies with someone the shooter didn’t want her going to the movies with.
A gun free zone no doubt. Did they have the requisite signs up???
I have both a daughter and a grandson living in Lafayette. I’m happy that neither of them went to that theater today!
If the murderer is dead, you’d figure they’d know his name and identity by now.
Perhaps they’re busily erasing his Facebook history.
Prayers for the victims and their families..
