An act of terror in a Louisiana movie theater last night took three lives and left nine other people injured.

59-year-old drifter John Russell Houser fired off 13 rounds of ammunition in a Lafayette movie theater last night killing three people and injuring nine more. Police say Houser intended on escaping the scene before he ultimately took his own life.

While authorities are still searching for answers in trying to understand Houser's motives, Louisiana governor Bobby Jindal offered his own sincere consolation: "We will get through this."
