Police release pictures of theater gunman's car
LAFAYETTE - Police released images of John Russell Houser's car, hoping to build a larger case against the movie theater gunman.
The images were taken after police took the car from the movie theater, where Houser appeared to have staged his getaway but shot and killed himself instead. In the pictures, the windows of the blue 1995 Lincoln Continental are blown out from police activity when they first found the vehicle parked on the side of the theater last week.
Police hope someone might recognize the car from an encounter, and be able to tell them more information about Houser's activity before the mass shooting Thursday night.
Houser killed two women and shot nine others before killing himself.
