Three people are dead, including the gunman, after the shooting at the Grand 16 Theater on Johnston Street. There were also nine others injured.
The shooting broke out around 7:30 p.m. in one of the movie theater's auditoriums, Lafayette police told ABC News. More than 100 people were in the theater, according to Louisiana State Police.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal traveled to Lafayette Thursday night, where he went to a hospital to meet with victims.
"Whenever we see these or hear about these senseless acts of violence, it makes us both furious and sad at the same time," Jindal said.
"Lafayette is a strong community," Jindal said. "We will get through this, we're a resilient community. This is an awful night for Lafayette, this is an awful night for Louisiana, this is an awful night for the United States."
Many Louisiana public officials posted on social media after the shooting, including Sen. Bill Cassidy, Sen. David Vitter and Rep. Steve Scalise:
