Mass Shooter at Madden Tournament Was Gamer Who Lost

Some local outlets are reporting that multiple victims have been shot and at least 4 people were killed - although police have not confirmed the exact number of deaths.

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

The incident was referred to as a "mass shooting" in a tweet by Jacksonville's Sheriff's Department, which said that one suspect is dead.

Their conditions are not life-threatening.

Katz carried out his shooting rampage at the Jacksonville Landing complex at around 1.34pm on Sunday (local time), police said.

The FBI in Baltimore are assisting with the investigation.

Authorities also impounded the suspect's vehicle, according to the sheriff's statement.

The county sheriff, Mike Williams, and Jacksonville's mayor, Lenny Curry, were expected to address members of media later in the day on Sunday.

To all those and anyone watching I say this: "Pray for Jacksonville as we deal with this senseless tragedy". A Madden competitor, Stephen "Steveyj" Javaruski, told LA Times that Katz was a player who lost in the tournament and then opened fire on the other competitors.

His tweet was not meant as any kind of threat, nor did it have any direct correlation to what happened a few hours later at the Madden event in Jacksonville.

News of the shooting initially spread through social media.

Former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, who was seriously wounded in a mass shooting, said the nation's attention turns to Florida, again.

The latest rampage occurred amid a debate over United States gun laws that was given fresh impetus by the massacre in February of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
