Lafayette Police have released the contents of the Grand Theatre shooter’s journal.

Last summer, John Russell Houser of Alabama opened fire at moviegoers minutes into a screening of “Trainwreck” and killed two people and injured nine others.

After the shooting, authorities found his journal at a hotel he was staying at.

His 39 page journal consists of mostly ramblings but does hint at what led to actions that shook Lafayette to the core.

The movie “Trainwreck” is written on the last page.

It also makes a cryptic reference which says, “My choice is clear for anyone that is a leader. If you see truth, you know what is to come.”
