Houser kills two people and injures nine others in a shooting at a movie theater in Lafayette, Louisiana, about 20 minutes into a screening of the movie Trainwreck.  One of the victims dies at the scene. A second victim dies at an area hospital. Police recover a .40 caliber handgun at the scene; at least 13 bullets are discharged in all. Witness:

We look to the left and it’s the shooter just standing up just shooting at the whole crowd. He was, like, 6-7 seats down from us. … He just looked like a common guy off the streets, good looking guy, just normal … (with) white hair white facial hair. And said nothing.
