Reports have been circulating this morning regarding a gunman who opened fire at a Lafayette cinema, The Grand Theatre, during a screening of Trainwreck. He killed three people, injuring seven others.
Twitter was quick to react to the news, mostly to discuss America's gun laws. Meanwhile, the star and writer of Trainwreck, Amy Schumer, had this to say.
My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana.
