Mass Shooter IDed As David Katz, Opened Fire After Losing Video Game

David Katz has been identified as the mass shooter at Jacksonville Landing.

Jacksonville, FL - Sheriff Mike Williams announced Sunday evening that the mass shooter who opened fire at a Madden 19 tournament has been identified as 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore.

The incident happened at Chicago Pizza at around 1:34 p.m. after Katz allegedly lost a Madden 19 tournament. The sheriff declined to confirm the motive at this time, but Katz was at the scene to participate in the tournament.

Katz used a handgun to open fire on people at the tournament, killing two people, and wounding 10 more. He then used his gun to kill himself.

Officers were on scene within two minutes of the first 911 call.

Two additional victims were treated for wounds unrelated to gunshots.

Authorities have taken possession of the shooter's vehicle and are planning to search it for additional evidence. Federal authorities are searching his residence.

Video of the tournament was released which captured audio of the gunshots and screaming.

Authorities have said that they are aware of the video and are asking for any more video to be forwarded to them.

The shooting has prompted renewed calls for gun control and eliminating "toxic masculinity." The calls to blame "male" culture have been recently renewed as some in Mollie Tibbetts's family blamed men for her murder by an illegal alien.

Why does the color of the murderer's skin matter?

LowEST IQ ConDom-- -is just another internet keyboard punk who needs to ensure and approve of only those comments which agree with his own biased viewpoint. I'm not running for office , I don't need your vote, no grand kids yet ,and I could care less of your DB "explanations". You seem way too sensitive and overly serious about your own "games". "What got out of hand?"....My, nothing (much) gets by you. If you are still feeling the need to pout over other people's comments then tell your Mommy.

Another crazy metal left creating a situation for the gov't to confiscate firearms from law abiding citizens.

@THEDUKE what contest got out of hand? everyone was enjoying themselves, then he got beaten by a black guy and it crushed his fragile white supremacist psyche.

next, do you realize there are millionaires that earn money and sponsorships through video games? I mean, I could surmise by your name "The Duke" that you're caught in some sort of time capsule where video game capitalism doesn't mean anything at all to you, but it's a big business, gramps.

If you're still confused by anything I just said, ask one of your adult grandkids to explain it to you in person.

LowEST IQ ConDom said "the vast majority of gamers are adults. we were kids in the 80s and 90s with the popularization of video games".

....and that's part of the problem in what you define as an "adult".I would not refer to these people as adults to be so seriously immersed at 24-38 yrs old in what amounts to children's or teen's games and a contest that obviously got out of hand. Some common sense and grow up. If you don't like my opinion tell your Mom. BTW- and as if you would know anything about a library.
