|Mass shootings are almost a daily occurrence.|
A mass shooting in Lafayette, LA at a movie theater. The tragedy happened at 7:00 pm at a nightly premiere of the movie Trainwreck.
Two people and the gunman are killed. There are multiple injuries in which some are considered critical. We have no confirmation about the name of this terrorist. But what is confirmed the terrorist is a White man who is in his fifties.
This is at the Grand 16 Movie Theatre at the Lafayette, LA.
The terrorist then turned the gun on himself and died. Lafayette police said they responded to a call from the cinema at around 7:30 p.m. A witness, Katie Domingue from the town of Carencro who was watching the film with her fiance said that "an older white man" began shooting about 20 minutes into the movie. "He wasn't saying anything. I didn't hear anybody screaming, either."
Hospitals were receiving patients and keeping officials informed; but no further information was provided to the public on the names of the hospitals and doctors or the names and precise conditions of the victims, due to privacy concerns and pending notification of families, and because of the early stage of the investigation.
One woman was shot in the stomach; she had been found by another witness, and it was unclear as to her condition or whether she had survived.
A nearby Mellow Mushroom pizza restaurant manager estimated 20 to 30 rescue vehicles were on scene.
The Louisiana State Police, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF), the Lafayette Parish Sheriff, and Lafayette Police Department police (led by Chief Jim Craft, who briefed reporters) were on the scene.
Lafayette is 60 miles west of Baton Rouge, and north of New Orleans, with about 120,000 residents.
|President Barack Obama said that these tragedies are happening way too much. Time for Congress to finally do something.|
World News Today send our condolences to the families of this senseless tragedy.
Louisiana Republican governor Bobby Jindal, President Barack Obama, Sen. David Vitter (R-LA), Sen. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) and Rep. Charles Boustany (R-LA) were informed of this latest tragedy.
Jindal halted the tours. He rushed back to the state to do a presser. He running for the higher office.
So now that they've identified the shooter as a 58 year old White man, who are they gonna blame for this tragedy?
A) Barack Obama
G) The Shooter
If you guessed G, then you're right. Obviously the shooter deserves the blame. But if you picked the rest of them, then you may have something there.
Once again, another mass murder in America. Another shooting at a movie theater, three years and three days to the day of the Aurora shooting.
|Americans wanted to watch a movie and this terrorist would disrupt their lives. Gov. Bobby Jindal got off the trail to join the law and junk food media in a presser about the developments.|
Of course, fresh off the tragedy in Chattanooga, Charleston, SC and every other event that required the president to address the nation.
Expect the inept Congress and Republican governors to call for more guns in the movie theater and nightclubs. Great. You're served alcohol, malt balls and bronze shells.
Developments will follow as they occur. The name of the terrorist will be released soon.
