Three Dead, Seven Injured In Louisiana Theater Shooting

Safe to say ISIS had nothing to do with this one.

A 58-year old white man opened fire in a movie theater, killing himself and two others while injuring seven other people.

The shooting happened during a showing of the movie ‘Trainwreck”

Nine people were injured in the shooting. Three of the victims are being at treated at Lafayette General Hospital, three are being treated at Lourdes Hospital, and two are being treated at Acadiana General Hospital.

Investigators say the shooting appears to be random. The shooting happened around 7:30 p.m. at the Grand Theater on Johnston Street.

Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is currently visiting victims and families at Lafayette General.

Amy Schumer tweeted:

I'm sorry for the families and those injured, but when exactly do we have that gun conversation again?
