Wakes Sunday for theater shooting victims
LAFAYETTE - Services for the two people killed Thursday in the Grand Theatre Lafayette shooting were scheduled for Sunday.
The viewing for Jillian Johnson started Sunday at 10 a.m. at the Delhomme Chapel of the Flowers in Lafayette and will continue until 6 p.m. Visitation will continue Monday at 9 a.m. until her funeral service at 12:30 p.m.
A wake for Mayci Breaux's family and friends is scheduled to begin at 5 p.m. Sunday at Ibert's Mortuary in Franklin. It will continue until 9 p.m., then resume Monday at 8 a.m. with the funeral Mass scheduled for 11 a.m.
The two died in Thursday night's shooting when Louisiana State Police said a gunman opened fire during a 7 p.m. showing of "Trainwreck." The gunman shot and wounded nine other people before taking his own life, according to police.
Breaux was a radiology student while Johnson was an artist and business owner.
Breaux's family asked people who wished to make memorial contributions to donate to the New Orleans chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Johnson's family asked people to donate in her memory to the Lafayette Central Park's general fund.
