Amy Schumer has voiced her sorrow over new cinema shooting

Just hours after President Obama gave an interview to the BBC discussing how his “greatest frustration” as the President was his failure to enact “common sense” gun control laws, another mass shooting has taken place.

This time the incident occurred in Lafayette, a town in the state of Louisiana. The gunman, who is believed to be a 58-year-old “lone, white male” shot dead two people before taking his own life.

It is almost three years to the day that James Holmes shot and killed 12 people and injured a further 70. It was only days ago that he was found guilty of all charges against him.

While it has not been confirmed, many outlets have reported that the shooting took place during a screening of Amy Schumer’s new hit-comedy, Trainwreck.

Amy, along with a host of other celebrities, has tweeted her devastation upon hearing the tragic news.
