Louisiana Shooting: Lafayette Cinema Gunman Kills Two


Sigh. So many crazies roaming the streets.

According to the BBC, a gunman has opened fire at a cinema in the US state of Louisiana, killing two people and injuring nine others before shooting himself, officials say.

Police said the attacker was a 58-year-old white man armed with a handgun but did not release any further details.

Witnesses said the man opened fire about 20 minutes into a screening of a film at the Grand Theatre in Lafayette.

Hours earlier, US President Barack Obama told the BBC that gun law reform had been his “greatest frustration”.

Police chief Jim Craft said officers responded to reports of a shooting at about 19:30 local time (01:30 GMT).

This is horrific, shocking news, and we extend our thoughts and prayers to the victims’ families at this time. I can’t even say “Stay safe” because…cinema. 🙁
