Lafayette shooter John Russell Houser’s apparent social media posts point to extreme right-wing beliefs

In the aftermath of the Lafayette, Louisiana, theater shooting a portrait of the gunman, John Russell Houser, has started to emerge. Houser, whom Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft described as “kind of a drifter,” maintained a spartan social media presence that points to conservative tendencies. Taken as a whole, his public comments and affiliations paint a disturbing portrait.

Editor's note: Police in Lafayette, La., have not confirmed any fatalities in movie theater shooting yet, but multiple media sources are reporting that 2 are dead, including the gunman, and at least 6 are injured. At a news briefing, police said ATF and FBI agents are on the scene and the shooting was contained to a single theater. We’ll continue to monitor events and update accordingly. - Jimmy

Movie Review...Gunman

(2/5)  Being armed with A-Listers was not enough for this hit-man film to kill my boredom.  The film dragged to carry the story between action sequences that where few and far in between.  Took too long in getting to the point, so by the time they relieved who was the true antagonist I had lost interested.  Instead of governments doing some shady stuff it is now corporations…this film in a nutshell.   A sniper on a mercenary assassination team, kills the minister of mines of the Congo. Terrier’s successful kill shot forces him into hiding. Returning to the Congo years later, he becomes the target of a hit squad himself (IMDB.com).

Teachers hailed as heroes in Louisiana theater shooting

LAFAYETTE, La. – Two teachers who were inside the movie theater during the Louisiana theater shooting on Thursday night are now being hailed as heroes.

When the gunman opened fire, the two women tried to protect each other. One also managed to reach for the fire alarm to let everyone know there was an emergency in the theater.

CBS News spoke to one of the teacher’s former colleagues, Cammie Maturin. She set up a GoFundMe page for the women on behalf of the Iberia Association of Educators. She identifies the women as Jena Meaux and Ali Martin. She describes the teachers as courageous, strong and beautiful. So far the page has raised over $6,000.

“This account is set up to help them defray costs of any medical expenses the insurance will not cover and also any time they may lose as our school year is approaching,” she writes on the page.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal also Tweeted in reference to the women on Friday morning.

Police said three people, including the shooter, were killed Thursday night in a movie theater in Lafayette, La. during a showing of the movie “Trainwreck.” Two died at the scene, including the gunman, and the third in a hospital, Police Chief Jim Kraft said.

Authorities said nine other people were wounded. Seven remained hospitalized Friday.

Authorities were trying to determine if the suspect knew any of his victims, Craft said. Law enforcement officials believe the gunman acted alone.

It appears the gunman fired at random, Kraft said.
