Law enforcement officials are waiting on completion of one last report before they release further details about the fatal July 23 Grand 16 movie theater shooting, Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said.

An FBI behavioral analysis report is the final piece of the investigation that needs to be finished before details of the shooting are released to the public, he said.

On July 23, about 20 minutes into the 7:10 p.m. screening of the movie “Trainwreck,” John Russell Houser, 59, opened fire inside the Grand 16 Theatre on Johnston Street. Jillian Johnson, 33, and Maycie Breaux, 21, died from their injuries. Nine other movie-goers were injured but survived. As police entered the theater, Houser shot and killed himself.

The Grand 16 Theatre has remained closed since the shooting. Its owners, Southern Theatres of New Orleans, has declined to say if or when the movie theatre will re-open.
