Theater Gunman's Family Called Him Mentally Ill...

The man who killed two people and wounded nine others at a movie theater was so mentally ill and violent that years ago, his wife hid his guns and his family had him hospitalized against his will before obtaining a court order to keep him away.
59 year-old John Russel Houser stood up about 20 minutes into the "Trainwreck" movie and fired first at two people sitting in front of him, then aimed his handgun at others. Police said Friday they found 13 shell casings. Randall Mann, whose 21-year-old daughter said, "They heard a couple of pops and didn't know what it was, Emily, was sitting in the same row as the shooter. She told her father that she did not hear the shooter say anything before opening fire.
