WWL-TV: Strange behavior by bearded man in oversized coat at Lafayette's Grand Theatre 14 frightens patrons _lowres

Advocate staff file photo by LESLIE WESTBROOK -- A worker applies a fresh coat of paint to the outside of the Grand Theatre 16 on Oct. 21, 2015, in Lafayette, La. In July, a gunman opened fire in the theater killing two people and injuring nine before turning the gun on himself. The theater reopened in November.


Strange behavior by a moviegoer at Lafayette's Grand Theatre 14 unnerved patrons, some of whom left the theater, during a Sunday afternoon showing of '"Deadpool," according to a report by WWL-TV.

Cpl. Paul Mouton, Lafayette police spokesman, told WWL that Christopher Harmason, 35, of New Iberia was issued a summons for disturbing the peace inside the theater. At least one person said Harmason, wearing an oversized coat, starting pacing in his aisle and muttering about halfway through the movie.

The theater is owned by the same company that owns Lafayette’s Grand Theatre 16, which reopened in November, nearly four months after a man shot and killed two women there and injured nine others before taking his own life.
