BREAKING: Mass Shooting: Jacksonville, FL; At Least 10 Shot
This is a developing story. Return to this post for updates.
MASS SHOOTING AT MADDEN TOURNAMENT IN JACKSONVILLE:
- At Least 10 Shot
- Several Dead
- Gunman at Large
CAUTION WILL BE DISTURBING TO SOME.
Suspect dead at the scene:
Shooter identified as David Katz.
Katz traveled down to Jacksonville from his home in Columbia, Maryland.
Gamers told WJAX-TV that Katz was defeated by two different players during the two-day Jacksonville tournament.
“He’s a well-known competitor,” explained one gamer, who claimed to have beaten Katz on Saturday.
“[He was here] all weekend,” the man said. “He had shades on, he didn’t speak to anybody. Even after we played…I went to shake his hand and just tell him good game and he just looked at me. He didn’t say anything.”
Before he played on Sunday, Katz was introduced by Madden announcers as “a man of business” who “keeps to himself.”
“You are not going to see much emotion,” an announcer said ominously. “He’s not here to make friends.”
