Emily Mann and her friend had come into the theater a bit late for a showing of "Trainwreck" so they quietly found seats near the top of the small theater.

Neither of them noticed the man just a few seats down until 20 minutes into the movie.

That's when John Russell Houser got up and began firing. He killed two people Thursday before turning the gun on himself.

Authorities are still trying to piece together what happened. Houser also wounded another nine people.

Houser had a history of mental problems. He bought the gun in Alabama and arrived in Lafayette in July.

Mann saw Houser fire off a number of shots before she dropped to the floor and fled the theater.
