Four years ago today, a mass shooting at the Grand 16 theater on Johnston Street claimed the lives of two Acadiana women and injured nine others.
The shooter John Houser opened fire during a movie and afterwards committed suicide.
Mayci Breaux and Jillian Johnson were killed.
21 year old Breaux from Franklin was a student at LSUE and worked at the Coco Eros boutique.
33 year old Jillian Johnson of Lafayette was a visual and musical artist, she designed t-shirts, and had her own gift shop in Lafayette.
She also played ukulele and guitar in her band “the figs.”
It’s a tragic night that Acadiana will never forget and the lives of Mayci and Jillian will never be forgotten.
