Jacksonville Shooter Kills Two, Injures Nine

At least two are dead and nine others were injured in a shooting today in Jacksonville, FL.

The shooting occurred at the Good Luck Have Fun Game Bar, which was hosting a Madden 19 video game tournament. The alleged shooter, identified as 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore, was reportedly one of the participants and losers in the tournament. He killed himself by a gunshot wound.

Katz, who typically played under the names “Bread” or “RavensChamp,” has been described by witnesses as being livid after he lost the tournament, although an official motive has not been given. People who knew him have said he typically kept to himself. Katz previously won the Madden Bills tournament in 2017.

The deceased victims have been identified as Elijah Clayton and Taylor Robertson.

“Jacksonville is mourning,” Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry said. “We have faced an occurrence that is all too common.”
