Now they have released the identities of not only the shooter but the two victims as well. The 58-year-old white male, who stood up 20 minutes into a screening of Trainwreck opened fire with his handgun has been identified as John Russel Houser (below).

As for the two victims in the tragic shooting, they were identified as Mayci Breaux (above left) who was 21, and Jillian Johnson (above right) who was 33. They were both sitting right in front of Houser when he opened fire.

Houser is from Phenix City, Alabama, and described as a "drifter" who was "estranged" from his family. Apparently Houser had also been staying at a Motel 6 and after investigation, police found disguises including wigs and glasses in his room — his car also had a license plate that had been switched.

Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said that police believe Houser originally planned to make his escape after the shooting as his car was parked near an exit door, but

"The quick law enforcement response forced him back into the theater, at which point he shot himself."

There's still no information on motive but we police are still looking into the case.

Our thoughts are will all of those affected by this incredibly terrible act.
