Jacksonville Shooting: Police Report Multiple Dead at Madden 19 Tournament

Jacksonville Shooting: Police Report Multiple Dead at Madden 19 Tournament

Katz, a competitor at the gaming event, had two handguns and extra ammunition inside the restaurant where the competition was taking place, officials said at a news conference Monday afternoon.

"[He was here] all weekend", said the gamer.

The Jacksonville Sherriff's Office said that one suspect is dead at the scene after the shooting at Jacksonville Landing, but it was unknown if there were other suspects involved.

Since the tournament, which brings together gamers from all across the country, was being streamed live on gaming network Twitch TV, most of the shooting and its chaotic aftermath was caught on video and audio clips, which have since gone viral on the internet.

White said it wasn't just because of his skills on the field.

The GLHF Game Bar at the Landing was hosting a Madden 19 football video game tournament at the time of the shooting.

When asked about moving on to the semi-finals, Katz said that he considered himself to be "one of the better players".

One of the gamers who defeated the gunman in the tournament told ActionNewsJax that Katz was acting "weird" during the competition and was wearing the same clothes he wore the day prior - on the first day of the proceedings.

The victor will be announced August 30 at the 2018-19 Champions League group stage draw. Ronaldo was dominant in La Liga, UEFA Champions Cup and World Cup play.

Mr Roberston who took the handle "SpotMePlzzz" was also a successful player, having won the Madden 17 Classic.

Williams said the FBI is assisting in the ongoing investigation, including looking further in the suspect's background.

In another circulated video, an announcer describes Katz, who's seen in the captured livestream, as someone who "keeps to himself".

Katz had also been competing at the tournament and had been eliminated earlier.

The gunman who opened fire on a "Madden NFL 19" tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday was hospitalized previously for mental illness, according to court records.

"He is not here to make friends". He suffered a minor injury.

EA Sports has used the NFL licence in its Madden football game series for more than 25 years. "We will work with our partners and our internal teams to establish a consistent level of security at all of our competitive gaming events".

"We offer our deepest sympathies to their families, to those injured and everyone affected by this", the company said.
