  • Reports: Shots fired during 'Madden NFL 19' tournament

A man armed with a handgun killed two people at a video game tournament that was being streamed online from a restaurant in United States of America's Jacksonville, Florida.

"Mass shooting at the Jacksonville Landing".

"There were three deceased individuals at the scene, one of those being the suspect, who took his own life", Williams told reporters at a press conference Sunday. At one point you can hear someone asking, "what are you shooting with?"

Jacksonville mayor Lenny Curry condemned the act.

Several personalities, including Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns, have gone on social media to express their feelings on the recent Madden 19 tournament mass shooting incident in Jacksonville.

The sheriff did offer some additional information about the victims.

Michelle Bloodworth, president of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, a coal lobby group, welcomed the EPA plan . Jim Justice said the rule was "a big win for West Virginia".

"We didn't see him fire off the first shot but me, personally, I saw him fire off the second, third or fourth shots as he was backing out of the area", Williams continued. Eventually, someone can be heard saying: "Oh my god" over and over again. "What did he shoot me with?" He was registered to play in this weekend's Jacksonville event.

Drini Gjoka, a 19-year-old player taking part, described the shooting in a series of posts on Twitter, calling it "the worst day of [his] life".

Gjoka tweeted that he was hit in the thumb when the tournament "got shot up". "Im leavinng and never coming back".

The shooting has prompted calls for tighter security at professional video gaming events.

The Sunday shooting immediately became an issue in Florida primary elections set for Tuesday when voters choose candidates for governor and the U.S. House of Representatives.

Williams said he is believed to be 24-year-old David Katz, a gamer whose name had circulated online as the gunman prior to the official update from law enforcement.

The NRA has called for an end to "gun free zones", particularly in the wake of a number of recent shootings. "So we took off running".

It was also a major disruption in what had already been a violent weekend.

A Twitter account for the Calabasas High School Coyote Football team identified the former player as Elijah Clayton.

Jeremy Cooke said Jacksonville Fire and Rescue Engine Ladder 1 had been training in a parking garage across from The Landing. One of those patients did have an operation today, another will have an operation tomorrow. "SWAT is doing a methodical search", it said on Twitter. Four responders rushed in without protective gear.

Stearns said an Federal Bureau of Investigation agent asked them questions including whether any ammunition meant for Katz had ever been mistakenly delivered to his house. He added that two others were injured in the rush to flee the gunfire. "They weren't on stretchers, they were just being carried".

That injury brought an early end to Peterson's 2017 season. "I'm super excited", Williams said of Peterson signing. But with Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall out with ankle injuries, Washington needed backfield insurance.
