They were just planning on enjoying a night out before the new school year, but then the unthinkable happened at the movies.
The shooting at the Grand 16 Theater in Lafayette, Louisiana left three people, including the gunman, dead and nine others wounded.
However, when the lone gunman began shooting, two amazing women summoned up the courage and presence of mind to act.
According to The Advocate, Ali Viator Martin and Jena Legnon Meaux, teachers at Jeanerette Senior High, had gone to the movies together.
