2015 Louisiana Theater Shooting Bobby Jindal

‘An awful night for Louisiana’

23 Jul, 2015

Louisiana Gov. Jindal speaks from just outside a Lafayette movie theater after the shooting.

This is an awful night for Lafayette. This is an awful night for Louisiana. This is an awful night for the United States. But we will get through this.

Jindal also says that two of the patrons in the theater were schoolteacher friends, one of whom may have shielded the other from a fatal bullet — and one who likely saved even more lives.

One of the teachers jumped on top of the second teacher in an act of braveness. Both teachers got shot but the second one, the one who got saved, even though she got shot she had the presence of mind to pull the fire alarm and save other lives

Gov. Jindal "horrified and shocked" by movie theater shooting
