Louisiana State Police Troop I Spokesman Brooks David was one of the many law enforcement personnel that were on the scene of the shootings at the Lafayette Grand Theatre 16 last Thursday night.

The shooter took the lives of Mayci Breaux of Franklin and Jillian Johnson along with injuring nine other people.

David says while nothing can take away the tragedy of the night's events, local law enforcement should be commended for their immediate response to the deadly situation.

He says it is beyond sad that two young people lost their lives.  David adds that quick reaction of law enforcement likely saved more lives.

He says multiple agencies worked together to respond to the shooting.
