Mass Shooting at Jacksonville Florida
#1
And yes, this does belong here if you're unaware, the shooting happened at a Madden 19 Tournament: https://www.gameinformer.com/2018/08/26/...onville-fl

I don't really have words right now. I'm shaken to the core here.

This is a big new piece that involves gaming, so I won’t be merging it with the World News thread.

— SERIOUSLY

Update on the shooting, it appears as though 6 people were taken to a specialty hospital and some numbers have been released saying that 4 have been killed and 11 are injured, though those numbers are not 100 percent cleared to be fact. You can watch a livestream here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/WJXT4TheLoca...e_internal

They aren't really talking about that exactly right at the moment though.

I hope some of my friends are okay, I know a few people who live close to that area.

Edit: This just in, the psycho behind this shooting just bumped himself off with his own gun

So far no names have been dropped as to who was shot or killed, but we do know that one of the deceased was a turny participant, who may have been targeted intentionally, because the shooter, who was identified as 24 year old David Katz, may been trashed talked a bit before their match. That's only according to the people who claimed to know the victim on their twitters though, so it isn't reliable information as of yet. Hopefully some time tonight or in the morning, we'll know more about who was killed or injured.

Both of the victims that were killed by David Katz were competitors on the Madden 19 tournament. One was Taylor "SpotMePlzzz" Robinson and the other was Eli "True" Clayton, at least according to the most recent update by GameInformer which you can see here: https://www.gameinformer.com/2018/08/27/...onville-fl

The victims killed were 27 and 22 years of age.
