Lafayette Theater Gunman Identified; Here Are The Victim’s Names Instead
Staying true to our policy on not publishing the names or photos of these mass shooters, here are the names of those who truly matter: the victims. Two women lost their lives in this senseless tragedy.
Macyi Breaux, 21, died at the scene in last night’s shooting at the Grand Theater on Jonhston Street. Macyi can be seen in the top photo on the left.
Macyi worked at a local clothing store and at the age of 21, had her whole life ahead of her. Her younger sister, Ali, spoke with reporters.
“She taught me how to be the strong person I am today,” Ali Breaux said. “She taught me not to care about what other people think, and taught be how to be a good person.”
The younger sister added, “She was my rock.”
Jillian Johnson, 33, died at a local hospital after last last night’s shooting at the Grand Theater on Jonhston Street. Jillian can be seen in the top photo on the right.
“She could do everything,” a friend of Johnson’s, Ann Savoy, told NBC News in an exchange on Facebook. “Pottery, photography, web design, music.”
Her husband, Jason Brown, wrote in a statement on the Facebook page for their shop, Red Arrow Workshop, that she was “a once-in-a-lifetime gal. A mother, daughter, sister and a truly exceptional wife.”
In addition, 9 others were injured in the shooting, although their names have not yet been released. When they are, we will add them here.
