Multiple Fatalities and Injuries Reported in Shooting at Madden Tournament

Deadly mass shooting at video game tournament in Florida

Police said the shooting occurred around 1:30 pm during a livestream tournament of the new game Madden NFL 19, hosted at the Good Luck Have Fun Game Bar at Jacksonville Landing, an outdoor mall.

But just as a game kicked off, real gunfire erupted.

When the shots first rang out, witnesses said they thought it was a firecracker or balloons popping. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said investigators were reviewing the footage as evidence and encouraged the public to turn in any additional videos that could help with the investigation. He says much of what he and others knew of Katz, they learned from his baffling style of playing the game.

Robertson, 27, and Clayton, 22, were participating in a Madden NFL 19 tournament when another contestant opened fire inside the Chicago Pizza at the riverfront complex.

"I'm not going to blame guns for this", he said. His friends tell FOX 13 he was shot three times and is expected to have surgery Monday.

In March, organizers called the Federal Bureau of Investigation when someone wrote online: "mass shooting ΓåòEVO18 see you there". Although those incidents involved people being crass or making jokes, they highlighted a lack of security within the fast-growing industry, Breslau said. "Life can be cut short in a second". It said Katz's body was found near those of two victims.

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.

Katz also competed at the Madden Club Series Championship later in 2017, ultimately losing in the quarterfinals game played in Burbank, California.

In an interview after the win with former Buffalos Bills player Steve Tasker, Katz talked about his prowess.

Johnson barricaded himself and some customers in the restaurant and grabbed two knives, adding, "If you come into this kitchen, you're bound to get stabbed".

President Trump's eldest daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump received a rash of criticism from social media users after she posted a message of sympathy to those impacted by a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday.

Florida Governor Rick Scott, meanwhile, confirmed he had offered state support in the aftermath. "We had to get in there".

Taylor Poindexter, who saw the shooting, speaks to reporters.

The site doesn't specifically cite guns, but it said, "Possession of a weapon, even if legally carried (except by law enforcement officers) is absolutely prohibited on Landing property".

UF Health Jacksonville took in six patients, four of whom were discharged from the hospital. "And it's yet another devastating indictment of this country's inability to keep our kids safe".

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office used Twitter and Facebook to warn people to stay far away from Jacksonville Landing while the shooting was taking place and as the building was cleared of dozens of gamers and fans who had scattered and hidden around the venue. The gunman's vehicle has also been seized by police.
