Amy Schumer: 'My heart is broken' after Louisiana movie theater shooting
Last night (July 23), a gunman killed two people and injured nine others before turning his gun on himself in a movie theater in Lafayette, La.
Among the many officials, entertainers and other personalities reacting to the crime on social media, Schumer has also weighed in, saying "My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana."

The alleged shooter was 59-year-old John Russell Houser, who has been described as "disturbed" by family members.
The crime is reminiscent of the Aurora, Colo., shooting from July 2012, during which then-24-year-old James Holmes opened fire during a sold-out screening, killing 12 people and injuring dozens more. Holmes was convicted of 24 counts of first-degree murder and 140 counts of attempted first-degree murder just this month.
