Mass Shooting At Madden 19 Tournament In Jacksonville

A suspect and two others are dead after a shooting at a downtown Jacksonville restaurant that was hosting a video game tournament, according to authorities. Nine additional victims were shot and injured, and two victims had other injuries.

Authorities believe 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore is the suspect in Sunday's shooting. The suspect, who Sheriff Mike Williams said used a single firearm, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Investigators have found the suspect's vehicle and say he stayed in the area the night before. The FBI searched Katz's south Baltimore home on Sunday evening, according to local media reports.

First responders were called to the scene at GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville Landing, an outdoor mall complex on the St. Johns River, at 1:34 p.m. local time, and officers arrived on the scene within two minutes. The shooting took place at a sanctioned "Madden NFL 19" competition, according to video game company Electronic Arts, which produces the Madden franchise.
