DEVELOPING: A gunman killed two people and injured seven others late Thursday when he opened fire in a Lafayette, La. movie theater before turning the gun on himself, the city's police chief said.
Police Chief Jim Craft told a news conference that authorities had identified the gunman as a 58-year-old white man, but did not release his name, citing an ongoing background check. The chief added that the conditions of the injured victims ranged from critical to non-life-threatening.
City Marshal Brian Pope told The Daily Advertiser that the gunman opened fire at the Grand 16 Theatre in Lafayette, approximately 40 miles east of Baton Rouge. Craft said the shooter opened fire with a handgun.

Wow the race of the man is right up front in the article.
OMG! Didn’t he read or see the Gun Free Zone signs?
Funny how that works.
Apparently, people were warned to evacuate the theater. Otherwise, more people may have been killed.
I wonder how many black people will be shot by other black people in Baltimore this weekend? and in Chicago? and Detroit and St. Louis. etc. More imprtantly, I wonder how many of them we’ll hear about on the MSM.
When it is a white shooter, the race is always mentioned in the lead line of the story. If it is a black shooter, it is often not mentioned — particularly if the black shooter has white victims. Don’t want to offend the race you know.
“OMG! Didnt he read or see the Gun Free Zone signs?”
Pulled up my app and checked. Yup, gun free zone. Shortly after CCL went into effect in Illinois we had a post office (also gun free) robbery near my sleepy town.
I hope his name isn’t Mohammed or Osma—
Hmmm...Doesn’t this fit right in line with Obamy wanting to take seniors guns away? 56 year old white man. Just thining.
The mooselimb strategy is go after soft targets. Now that hussein has sanctioned the move toward a caliphate, expect more of the same in venues such as shopping malls, amusement parks, stadiums and the like.
Was just thinking.
Guy’s shooting from the back of the theater.
One trained CCW carrier from a one knee position down in the theater could have dropped this guy with 2 shots.
Maybe a former employee?
When can you start getting social security? I honestly do not know..
Seems odd that given what I saw about a link to guns and social security in the news recently, that there would be an older guy that at least is close to the template to their agenda that they are pushing.
I see every shooting that makes national news as a false flag, especially when it fits DC talk.
Me thinks this guy is a nut job, it was known, nothing done to keep this from happening.
He wanted to make a statement or blow steam.
Oh, by the way, knowing that area, he was a registered DEMOCRAT!
And apparently no one with a gun to stop him.
I've decided I can't read. At least, I can't read/comprehend "no firearms" or "gun free zone" signs. They are so idiotic they must be a joke - so I've decided to ignore them. The last 3 times I've gone to a movie with family members I've CC'd in the theater.
In my state "gun free" signs carry no legal force. (unless backed up by an actual system to exclude firearms including guards and metal detectors) Just hanging a sign on the door is meaningless. Sure, if for some odd reason you're spotted carrying in the business they can ask you to leave and then you must leave. (else you're trespassing and can be arrested) They ask me to leave, fine. Ban me, fine too. My safety and that of my family is more important than their feel-good PC idiocy. They don't want my business fine by me. So I carry, period.
