Several Killed in Mass Shooting at Madden 19 Tournament in Florida

Several Killed in Mass Shooting at Madden 19 Tournament in Florida

Pending confirmation, we believe the suspect is a 24-year-old, David Katz from Baltimore, MD.

Police had earlier said there were "multiple fatalities" and that many people had been transported to local hospitals.

The shooting reportedly occurred as a video game tournament was happening.

About 15 million people tune into Twitch each day to watch live or archived videos, which in addition to video game playthroughs include people live streaming their hobbies, music, comedy or everyday lives, reported Business Insider.

A gunman opened fire during a "Madden NFL 19" online video game tournament Sunday at a mall in Jacksonville, killing two people and sending several other victims to area hospitals, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said during a news conference.

Police say the shooter killed two people before taking his own life, but they've declined to comment on his motive. "The area is not safe at this time", the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said on Twitter.

"The Department also tweeted that "we are finding many people hiding in locked areas at The Landing", asking those individuals to "stay calm" and remain hidden". Multiple shots are then heard, followed by screams.

The 33-year-old was then asked about his son, Cristiano Jr. "The small details make the big difference at the end of the day so..." "He is very competitive".

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is in the process of securing the location, and are investigating into the possibility of a second suspect. According to EA Sports' website, the top 72 finishers receive prizes ranging from $500 to $25,000, while the victor and runner-up would be placed automatically in the round of 16 at the Madden Bowl this coming April.

Poindexter, an aspiring gamer, said she had gone to seek experience at the tournament.

The Baltimore Sun reports that Federal Authorities were at a home near South Baltimore on Sunday night as part of an investigation into the Jacksonville mass shooting. Seven had been shot, Williams said.

The tournament at The Landing entertainment and shopping complex - a regional qualifier for finals in Las Vegas with a US$25,000 prize - took place at the GLHF Game Bar.

One of the company's gamers, a 19-year-old who goes by Drini, was shot in the thumb but managed to escape and is going to be fine, Lake said. Gov. Rick Scott said he spoke to President Trump, who offered federal resources.

Gjoka tweeted, "I will never take anything for granted ever again".
