Louisiana theatre shooter thanks man accused of black church slayings
BATON ROUGE, La. – The gunman responsible for a deadly rampage inside a Louisiana movie theatre last summer left a journal thanking the man accused of killing 9 black people in a South Carolina church.
Police said Houser shot and killed two people and wounded nine others before fatally shooting himself inside an auditorium at The Grand 16 theatre in Lafayette on July 23, 2015. Jillian Johnson, a 33-year-old musician and business owner, and Mayci Breaux, a 21-year-old student, died in the shooting.
In his 40-page journal, Houser laments the state of the U.S., calling it a “filth farm,” and he rants against the news media, national political figures, women, gays and blacks.
