  • A mass shooting has taken place at a Madden tournament in Jacksonville

Katz, a competitor at the gaming event, had two handguns and extra ammunition inside the restaurant where the competition was taking place, officials said at a news conference Monday afternoon. "Traumatized and devastated", the gamer added.

David Katz killed two and wounded 11 in a shooting at a Florida gaming tournament.

Survivors said Katz snapped after being eliminated from the tournament. "He's a man of business", the announcer said.

In response to the deadly mass shooting at the Jacksonville Landing during a "Madden NFL '19" regional tournament, Electronic Arts (EA) canceled its remaining events as it undergoes a safety review.

The Los Angeles Times reported earlier that the shooter was a gamer who was competing in the popular football video game tournament and lost.

"I think the faith community has sat back too long and allowed others to dictate what's going to happen in America", he said.




The gunman who opened fire on a "Madden NFL 19" tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday was hospitalized previously for mental illness, according to court records.

The gunman, Katz, was a professional gamer himself.

An avid gamer, Robertson was known for his success in "Madden" and had played 18 games as part of the Madden community and won 72 percent of the time.

One witness said "everyone [was] running for their lives", and that people were being trampled while trying to exit the venue, while others tried to hide from the shooter. He's not here for the experience, he's not here to make friends. Robertson from Ballard, West Virginia was the victor of the Madden NFL 17 Classic and he also competed in the Madden NFL 18 Club Championship on the Titan's behalf. One person was taken to Baptist Medical Center with a minor injury.

Following the shooting, EA Sports, the game developer of Madden 19, released the following statement: "We are aware of an incident at a sanctioned Madden Championship Series competition in Jacksonville", the company said. "Our thoughts and deepest sympathies go out to their families, loved ones, and all of those affected by this tragedy".

"While these qualifying events are operated independently by partners, we work with them to ensure competitive integrity and to gather feedback from players", Wilson wrote in a blog post.
