People Killed in Mass Shooting at Video Game Tournament

'Madden NFL 19' Livestream Tournament Shot Up in Jacksonville, FL

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune a shooter opened fire during a Madden video game tournament in Jacksonville Sunday afternoon killing four people and injuring nearly a dozen others.

He said the FBI was searching the man's home as part of the investigation.

Florida authorities say they've finished clearing the scene. A live feed from the tournament was underway when the shooting took place, and the audio feed was interrupted by the sound of several gunshots.

Survivors of February's high school shooting in Parkland, Florida, expressed sorrow at news of another mass shooting in the state.

Multiple people are dead, including a suspect, following a mass shooting at an entertainment complex in downtown Jacksonville, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said Sunday.

The gunman, identified as 24-year old David Katz, from Baltimore, Maryland, took his own life inside Chicago Pizza after the shooting, the sheriff said.

The wounded victims were rushed to Memorial Hospital and UF Health Hospital.

"Multiple fatalities at the scene, many transported", the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office tweeted. "We can not accept this as our reality", said Delaney Tarr, one of the organizers of the student-led March for Our Lives movement.

Williams said law enforcement received 911 calls shortly after 1:30 p.m., local time, about shots fired at the location, and that authorities responded within minutes.

Audio and video of a gunman firing into the crowd at a "Madden NFL 19" livestream event in Jacksonville, Florida, captures the chaos and carnage of what is the latest US mass shooting.

The maker of the Madden NFL video games, EA Sports, lists a David Katz as the victor of a 2017 championship among gamers representing NFL team The Buffalo Bills. "I think we've got a gun problem in Jacksonville".

Video game manufacturer Electronic Arts tweeted, "This is a terrible situation, and our deepest sympathies go out to all involved". Before his identity was confirmed, social media users were doing their best detective work, trying to figure out who the gunman was. It was the site of a Donald Trump rally in 2015, early in his campaign for the White House.
