Amy Schumer Tweets Her Heartbreak Over 'Trainwreck' Screening Shooting In Louisiana
Two people have been killed after a gunman opened fire during Schumer's new flick...
According to Variety, on Thursday (July 23), a 58-year old white male - who was attending a showing of Schumer's new comedy at the Grand 16 Theatre - stood up about 20 minutes into the film and randomly started shooting at the audience.
He killed two people (thought to be teachers), before turning the gun on himself. Seven victims were later hospitalised, three of which have suffered critical injuries.
After hearing the news, Schumer tweeted: "My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana."
The ages of the victims range from late teens to people in their 60s, with police yet to identify the dead or the gunman. However, it's thought the shooter has a criminal history, dating back several years.
Police chief Jim Craft told reporters after the incident: "It really is a chaotic scene."
The shooting comes less than a week after a jury in Colorado found James Holmes guilty of killing 12 people during a midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in 2012.
