Theater Shooter Thanks Man Accused of Black Church Slayings

The gunman responsible for a deadly rampage inside a Louisiana movie theater last summer left a journal thanking the man accused of killing nine black people in a church.

In a rambling, handwritten 40-page journal released by police Wednesday, John Russell Houser described Dylann Roof as "green but good."

"Had Dylan Roof reached political maturity he would have seen the word is not (n-word), but liberal," Houser wrote. "But thank you for the wake up call Dylann."

Houser shot and killed two people and wounded nine others before fatally shooting himself inside an auditorium at The Grand 16 theater in Lafayette last July, police have said. Jillian Johnson, a 33-year-old musician and business owner, and Mayci Breaux, a 21-year-old student, died in the shooting.

Police recovered Houser's journal from the Motel 6 room in Lafayette where he had been staying since early July. It was released Wednesday along with photos from the motel room and a nearly 600-page, partially redacted investigative report.
