    Emily in Paris actor Ashley Park also posted a video to Instagram sharing her feelings on the events and how to move forward.

    "This 21-year-old with a gun last night," Park said. "He came from somewhere, and at some point someone could have told him what he was feeling and thinking, and that hate was wrong. It starts at a really small level, and I think we can do it."
