Posted: Updated:

A gunman opened fire inside a Lafayette, Louisiana movie theater Thursday night.

Authorities tell NBC News that 2 people were killed and eight others were injured. The shooter then turned the gun on himself

Katie Domingue of Carencro was at the 7 p.m. showing of "Train Wreck" with her fiance', Joshua Doggett. About 20 minutes into the movie, Domingue said, she heard a loud noise.

"We heard a loud pop we thought was a firecracker," she said.

She saw "an older white man" standing up and shooting down, not in her direction.

"He wasn't saying anything. I didn't hear anybody screaming either," Domingue said.

She heard about six shots, then she and Doggett ran to the nearest exit, leaving behind her shoes and purse.
