Update: July, 24/2015 - 11:02

WASHINGTON — At least six people have been shot at a movie theatre in the US state of Louisiana during a showing of the film "Trainwreck," local media reported on Thursday.

The city of Lafayette's Daily Advertiser newspaper reported that six people were injured and the shooting at the local Grand Theatre had ended, citing an official.

"Prayers for Lafayette at Grand Theater. Talking to state police colonel about shooting in Lafayette," tweeted state governor Bobby Jindal, adding that he was on his way to the city.

Television images showed a hectic scene at the cinema, surrounded by dozens of emergency cars and crews.

The shooting comes as a jury deliberates the death penalty for the gunman in a 2012 theatre massacre in Colorado that left 12 dead and 70 injured. — AFP
