Jacksonville Shooting: Police Report Multiple Dead at Madden 19 Tournament

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

"But it took a quick second for it to dawn on us that there weren't any balloons anywhere in the restaurant and then we just heard probably two or three more "pops" and we realized it wasn't anything other than gunshots and we got up and we took off running toward the door".

Authorities believe 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore carried out the attack using at least one handgun at the Jacksonville Landing, a collection of restaurants and shops along the St. Johns River.

Alleged shooter David Katz, 24, was competing at the video game tournament, and apparently shot at least two people before killing himself.

The shooting occurred at GLHF Game Bar in downtown Jacksonville, which was hosting the event that police say the suspect was in town for.

A total of nine people were shot, and two were injured fleeing. One person is being treated for a minor injury at Baptist Medical Center, spokesperson Cindy Hamilton said. Six others were transported to the hospital in serious or good condition, three shot once and three shot a couple of times.

Six victims between the ages of 20 and 35 were at UF Health in Jacksonville, WTLV reported. Hospital spokesman Pete Moberg told the news network that all of the patients are in stable condition.

A video widely shared of the Madden football game that was being live-streamed on the social media network Twitch shows the game coming to a halt with the message "Controller Disconnected" appearing in a pop-up box. The shots continue, screams are heard, and a man's voice is heard saying, "Oh, my God!" over and over. The tournament was the Southeastern Qualifier for the Madden NFL 19 Championship Series. "Don't hesitate to secure your spot", the post read in part. He stayed there for about 10 minutes and then ran from the scene. To all those and anyone watching I say this: "Pray for Jacksonville as we deal with this senseless tragedy".

Others just straight up said she doesn't care about the shooting.
