Jindal: 2 Teachers Were Heroes in Movie Theater Shooting
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said this morning on “Fox and Friends” that there were “amazing acts of heroism and selflessness” during last night’s movie theater shooting.
Three people are dead – including the gunman – and nine more were injured at a Lafayette movie theater last night.
Jindal said that one teacher jumped in front of a colleague to shield her during the shooting. The second teacher then pulled the fire alarm, despite being shot in the leg. Jindal said that the teachers' actions may have saved many lives.
Jindal also said that it appears the gunman tried to escape, but saw police and went back inside, where he shot himself.
The 2016 presidential contender has suspended his campaign in the wake of yesterday’s shooting.
“Now’s the time for prayer, now’s the time to love these families, now’s the time to come together and be united,” he said. “Look, there are gonna be tears, it’s not gonna be easy as we explain to our children why bad things happen […] but we will get through this.”
