Amy Schumer, Donald Trump, Patton Oswalt and others tweeted Thursday night about the deadly shooting that occurred during a screening of Schumer’s film, “Trainwreck.”

John Russell Houser, 59, opened fire during a packed showing of the comedy in a theater in Lafayette, La. Houser killed two people and wounded nine others before turning the gun on himself, authorities said.

My heart is broken and all my thoughts and prayers are with everyone in Louisiana,” Schumer, (@amyschumer) tweeted. Not surprisingly, Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump) felt the need to weigh in with, “Thoughts & prayers with everyone in Lafayette, Louisiana this evening.”
