A man authorities referred to as “kind of a drifter” from Phenix City, Alabama fired more than a dozen shots at a movie theater audience on Thursday, killing two women before shooting himself.

Police said about 20 minutes into a screening of the film “Trainwreck,” 59-year-old John Russell Houser began firing into the crowd, wounding nine people and killing 33-year-old Jillian Johnson and 21-year-old Mayci Breaux.

Houser attempted to leave the theater by blending in with the crowd, but when he saw police approaching, he went back into the theater and shot himself.
