Movie theater shooting 
A loud pop, like a fire cracker, then five more -- that's how one witness described last night's shooting at a Louisiana movie theater that left three dead and nine wounded. Stories of heroism immediately began to emerge. Presidential hopeful Gov. Bobby Jindal traveled to the scene within hours of the shooting, telling reporters that a teacher who was in the theater jumped in front of a second teacher, saving her life. He said the second teacher then managed to pull a fire alarm to alert other moviegoers.
