Court Documents Detail History of Mental Illness for Lafayette Gunman

After a deadly shooting Thursday night in a Louisiana movie theater, court documents have revealed disturbing facts about the Lafayette gunman.
Police said Friday that John Russel Houser opened fire during a showing of 'Trainwreck,' killing two and wounding nine others before shooting himself.
According to documents obtained by the press, Houser had a history of mental illness and erratic behavior that led to his estrangement from family.
A temporary protective order filed against him by his family in 2008 stated he suffered from manic depression and/or bi-polar disorder.
Theatergoers said the gunman sat alone and said nothing before he stood up and opened fire at the Grand 16 theater in Lafayette.
