At Least 4 Dead, 11 Injured in Mass Shooting at Madden 19 Video Game Tournament in Florida

At least 4 people are dead and at least 11 people are injured after a mass shooting during a Madden 19 video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida. The shooting took place as the tournament was live-streaming online.

One suspect, a white male, was dead at the scene according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s office.

NBC News reports: ‘Three people were admitted to the Jacksonville Memorial Hospital and are in stable condition, according to a hospital spokesperson. The shooting appears to have occurred inside a pizza restaurant that includes a bar dedicated to video games and other forms of gaming. The bar was in the middle of hosting the Madden 19 Southeastern Qualifier Tournament, which comes with a $5,000 prize. Madden 19 is the latest NFL football video game put out by sports game publisher EA Sports.’

Variety adds: “The tournament, which was held at GLHF Game Bar in the Landing along the St. Johns River, was broadcast on Twitch. Multiple loud gunshots can be heard over footage of gamers playing “Madden NFL 19.” As the controller disconnects, audio can be heard of an attendee saying, “F—, what is he shooting with?” More shots are fired, and screaming can be heard in the background.”
