Def calls new witness.
William Reese.

Student and livery driver, CSU, Long Beach, CA
Went to middle school, hs with JH. Ate lunch daily with JH. Hung out with him. About 6 in group. Quiet guys. Sometimes see movies or play paint ball outside of school. Felt JH was similar to him. Intelligent, quiet, loners, They did not have gfs, played soccer, cross country; never went to each other's homes. Social in the group but none of them where really social with others...Never saw JH get angry, mad, rude, get into trouble...
last saw him after the first two years of college...Pretty much friends during middle school and hs.

No State questions.
No jury questions.
Witness dismissed.

There's been another theater shooting!  Louisiana Grand 16 theater.  It's on CNN right now.

3 dead, including gunman.  Walked in and opened fire.  Killed 2 and then killed himself.  At least 7 injured.

I can't find the tweets because my Twitter feed is missing a ton of tweets.

The reference above to Trainwreck is because that's the movie that was playing in the theater when the shooter opened fire.

So sad!!! Sad

I can't even say that I am surprised. It seems like there is always a copycat after a mass shooting gets a lot of publicity. Schools, malls, movie theatres. Where is it safe these days???

Police: 3 Dead in Movie Theater Shooting, Including Gunman
LAFAYETTE, La. — Jul 24, 2015, 1:05 AM ET
By MICHAEL KUNZELMAN Associated Press
Associated Press


A man sitting in a packed movie theater stood up and began firing into the crowd, killing two and injuring at least seven others Thursday night before fatally shooting himself, authorities said.

Police described the shooter as a 58-year-old "lone white male," but did not immediately disclose his name. They later identified his car and evacuated the area after spotting something suspicious inside the vehicle. Police said they were going to set off an explosion in the car, and minutes later an Associated Press reporter on the scene heard a number of short bursts similar to firecrackers coming from that vicinity.

At least one theatergoer described the scene, saying an older white man stood up about 20 minutes into the 7 p.m. showing of the movie "Trainwreck" at the Grand 16 theater in Lafayette and began shooting.

La. theater shooter identified as John Russell Houser (Video)

58-year-old fired randomly with handgun, officials say

Author: By Saeed Ahmed CNN
Published On: Jul 23 2015 09:09:59 PM PDT Updated On: Jul 24 2015 05:39:26 AM PDT

CNN) -

[Breaking news update at 8:28 a.m. ET]

The Lafayette, Louisiana, movie theater shooter was 59-year-old John Russel Houser, Lafayette Police Chief Jim Craft said Friday.

Craft described Houser as "kind of a drifter" who was from Alabama and had been in Lafayette since early July, staying in a local hotel. Authorities have found various "disguises, basically" at the hotel room where he'd been staying.

Houser fired at least 13 rounds, according to the police chief.

"It appears he was intent on shooting and escaping," Clark said of the shooter. "The quick law enforcement response pushed him back into the theater."

As to his motive, Col. Michael Edmonson of the Louisiana State Police said, "Why did he come here? Why did he do that? We don't know that."

Victims, gunman identified in Grand 16 shooting

The victims who died in last night's shooting at The Grand 16 have been identified as 21-year-old Mayci Breaux of Franklin and 33-year-old Jillian Johnson of Lafayette.

The shooter, who shot himself in the theater, has been identified as 58-year-old John Houser of Alabama. Police say he was a "drifter" who had been in the Lafayette area since early July. He fired 13 rounds into the theater during the 7 p.m. showing of "Trainwreck."

One of the victims and the gunman died at the scene.  A second victim died at an area hospital. Nine people were injured. Two have been treated and released. One remains in critical condition.

He was staying at the Motel 6 on University Avenue. Police searched his hotel room this morning and found wigs and other disguises.

Houser drove a 1995 blue Lincoln Continental with a switched license plate to the theater and parked outside the exit door. He intended on shooting then escaping, but police believe the rapid law enforcement response forced Houser back into the building, where he shot himself.

Police recovered a .40 caliber handgun. No explosive devices were found in his vehicle.

LAFAYETTE, La. — One was a popular student studying to be a radiology technician, while the other was an outgoing artist who ran retail boutiques in two Louisiana cities.

The two people slain by a gunman who opened fire Thursday in a crowded Louisiana movie theater, Jillian Johnson and Mayci Breaux, had promising careers and the love of friends and family.

"They had a face, they had a name. They had a future. It wasn't to die in this theater," said Col. Michael Edmonson, head of Louisiana State Police.

---------------

This is extremely unusual.  The juror knew he was going to be with the deliberating jurors because the judge yesterday allowed the alternate jurors to mingle with the deliberating jurors. He said he was going to allow it as long as the alternate jurors and the deliberating jurors didn't discuss issues related to the trial.  The judge shouldn't have allowed that to happen. JMO

Louisiana Theater Shooting: Gunman John Houser 'Disturbed,' Family Said in Docs

by Tom Winter, Tracy Connor and Erik Ortiz



The lone gunman who opened fire at a packed Louisiana movie theater had a history of "extreme erratic behavior" and was so unstable that his wife removed all of the guns from the home, court documents show.

John Russell Houser, 59, was described as a "drifter" by police following Thursday night's shooting in Lafayette, where he killed two people and wounded nine others before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

But the court documents, which detail a divorce filing by Houser's wife in May, reveal a life plunged into disarray: He made threats to family members, had a history of hospitalizations for his mental conditions and was known to law enforcement.

John Russel Houser: What we know about Louisiana movie theater shooting suspect

By Michael Walsh
5 hours ago
Yahoo News




A gunman with radical political beliefs and a history of erratic behavior killed two people and wounded at least nine others during a showing of “Trainwreck” at a movie theater in Louisiana.

The 59-year-old “lone white male” opened fire about 20 minutes into the film Thursday evening at the Grand 16 theater in Lafayette, roughly 60 miles west of Baton Rouge.

You're welcome. I was debating starting a new thread for it, but since the gunman was dead, and there would be no trial, I decided to just post it here.

Seems rather odd to me...
Check out the names: James Holmes and John Houser....
Both refer to similar residences: Ho(l)mes and House(r)
Wonder what the odds of that would be.... Laughing

Wow. Opened the door for appeals... WIDE OPEN.
Since the defense really presented such a weak defense I must wonder if this was not planned...
I am still the skeptic. Sorry about that... shifty

Don't these courts have rules for court dress?
I am guessing not...
Shoot. My kids were better dressed for high school MOCK TRIAL!!!

----------------------------

These witnesses are testifying outside the presence of the jury,  their testimonies will be videotaped. The defense had seven witnesses ready to testify today but the judge sent the jury home because one of the jurors was feeling sick.

Why wasn't testimony taken via phone, etc., from the ONE strong defense witness who was out chasing butterflies....?

This is extremely unusual.  The juror knew he was going to be with the deliberating jurors because the judge yesterday allowed the alternate jurors to mingle with the deliberating jurors. He said he was going to allow it as long as the alternate jurors and the deliberating jurors didn't discuss issues related to the trial.  The judge shouldn't have allowed that to happen. JMO
This IS setting it up perfectly for grands grounds to appeal... Embarassed

POLLING THE JURY

Juror 87 being questioned re the shooting in Louisiana.
She says she only heard her son mentioning it.
She states she has not discussed the Louisiana of the JH cases with any one else.
She said she "blew off" her son...and she laughed aloud about it in court.
Orman has no more questions.

Defense wants her brought back in and asked EXACTLY what her son said;
She said her son said "it was another theater shooting" and she blew him off.

Nelson, defense, has no more qustions for Juror 87.

Juror 1009 (Double oo9?) is being asked re the Louisiana shooting.
Juror stated she saw/read it on the computer.
She read the shooting came directly on the anniversary of the JH' verdict.
That was when she stopped reading.
She said she got the info on Friday and has not discussed it with anyone.

Orman: Comments on germs being spread by microphone.
Nelson: No action re Juror 1009

Juror 118 being brought in.
She said there were three words on a crawler across the screen.
She said she changed it.
Has not discussed it with anyone and will not. She will avoid any future news' coverage of the event in Louisiana.

Orman: No questions, no actions
Nelson: No questions, no actions
Judge: Will instruct jury to avoid all coverage of Louisiana.

Juror 155:
He said he listened to about a minute of the news: shooting in a theater, candlelight vigil; he turned the channel.He has not discussed it and will not discuss it.

Orman: No questions, no requests
Nelson: No questions, no requests

Juror 673:
She said she has a bit of knowledge about it from the news;
Knows the age of the shooter and that 3 people were dead; not sure when she heard about it; it was on the internet; saw a link on the internet, clicked it, and read the story for about 2 minutes. Knew it was in LaFayette, Louisiana, theater.
Said she has learned nothing about the JH case from the media.
She tried to discuss the latest shooting with her husband and he told her he knew about it but did not think she was allowed to know about it at this time.

Orman: no questions, no actions

Nelson: Consulting with her team. Asking for this juror to be excused.
She did intentionally seek out info, read about it, and then attempted to discuss it with her husband. Asking for this by constitutional right to fair trial, etc..

Orman: He presents disagreement for having her removed.

Juror not sure when she read the article. Thinks it was before Friday when the Judge admonished them (He has admonished them ALL ALONG.)Judge said no violation because it was before the admonishment... (I disagree.) Judge said there is no evidence she disobeyed the court... Judge feels she is extremely honest.

Juror 706:

She said she heard about it on Thursday on NPR. Once she heard it was a theater shooting, she used the remote and turned it off. One other one when they said info about the shooter, she turned it off. She does not know how many injured or killed. Does think the shooter killed himself but does not know his age or what he looks like, etc.. Heard twice on NPR.

No questions, no actions requested.

Juror 737:
He read a headline on the internet. He did not click it.
He said he read two were killed and that is all he knows.

No questions, no actions requested.

Juror 307:

She said a friend texted her, "Did you hear there was another theater shooting?"
She said she did not want to/ could not discuss this with her.
(Is she allowed to tell others she is on the JH trial?)

No questions, no requests:

Juror 557:
She said she was told by her husband there had been another theater shooting.
He said it was in Louisiana, two people were killed.

No questions, no requests.

Bringing back jury.

@Freckles:

I also disagree. Juror 673 should have been dismissed.
