According to police, about 100 people were in the theatre for a screening of Trainwreck when a 58-year-old white man started shooting. He died of a self-inflicted gunshot.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal called for prayers for the families of the movie theatre shooting victims.
Three were killed, including the gunman, and seven injured in the shooting Thursday.
"This is an awful night for Lafayette. This is an awful night for Louisiana. This is an awful night for the United States. But we will get through this," Jindal said at a news conference Thursday night.
He said he'll be meeting with the families of the victims.
U.S. Rep. Charles Boustany, a Republican from Lafayette, echoed the governor's sentiment and said he is "saddened at the terrible loss of life."
Other theatres in the area have been closed out of precaution.
Celebrities have taken to Twitter to voice their concern and offer their condolences.
