Multiple dead, including suspect, in mass shooting at Fla. video game tournament

Recommended Posts


A mass shooting at a video game tournament that was being streamed online from a restaurant in Jacksonville, Fla., on Sunday has resulted in multiple fatalities, according to the local sheriff's office.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said one white male suspect was dead at the scene. He declined to clarify how many people were killed or comment on what led to the third major mass shooting to hit Florida in the last two years.

Later on Twitter, the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said "inaccurate numbers" were being reported on the number of dead, and that the office will release such number when they are able to confirm it. 

Dozens of ambulances and police cars flooded into The Jacksonville Landing, a waterfront dining, entertainment and shopping site in the city's downtown, after several shots rang out on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The shooting took place during a regional qualifier for the Madden 19 online football game tournament at the GLHF Game Bar inside a Chicago Pizza restaurant, according to the venue's website.

The tournament was being livestreamed when several shots rang out, according to video of the stream shared on social media. In the video, players can be seen reacting to the gunfire and cries can be heard before the footage cuts off.

THis is totally sad! People are there to enjoy a good time and someone wants to ruins their life and others for stupid reasons. This world seems toxic for any upcoming generations ahead!

My thoughts good to the family and friends of the victims

Without turning this into a political issue, I have to say that this is very sad, and unfortunately is what one can expect from Trump's America.

For what ever it's worth, my sympathies go to the family and friends of the deceased!
