The professional gamer, who competes under the name oLARRY, had returned about a week ago after a six-month stint in Milwaukee, where he completed a seasonal competition to play video games competitively for the Milwaukee Bucks' official National Basketball Association 2K team.

Perhaps their biggest worry was whether they would win the Madden tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, and earn the chance to compete for the big prize money in Las Vegas. Shooting victims screamed in agony.

A 24-year-old angry gamer opened fire on a Madden NFL video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida when he lost a match in the competition.

"We don't have anything that we can stand up here today and tell you that this is the motive", Williams said at a news briefing. The victims were all in stable condition at local hospitals, the sheriff said...

The shootings were also inadvertently streamed on video platform Twitch. The game abruptly stopped after several shots were heard. He was one of the people Casey shielded.

Rya Aleman said he huddled in the bathroom for 10 minutes and ran from the scene.

"He stayed to himself. he didn't talk much", Montana said.

The man from Baltimore reportedly opened fire at Jacksonville Landing, a marketplace and entertainment area in downtown Jacksonville at around 1:30 pm.

One person pulled up their shirt, showing where they had been shot in the chest, Wyse said. "Life can be cut short in a second", he said on Twitter.

The 27-year-old Robertson, who was from West Virginia, had career winnings of more than $80,000 and had won the Madden NFL 17 Classic, according to his player profile on EA Sports.

The gamer told the television station that David Katz was a "well-known competitor" who seemed to be acting in a "premeditated" fashion. "Thanks for following along, Bills fans", the tweet read. In a post-tournament interview in February 2017, Katz seemed confident of his ability, saying: "I think personally I'm one of the better players". "When I took his gaming equipment controllers away so he couldn't play at 3 or 4 in the morning, I'd get up and find that he was just walking around the house in circles", the mother said, according to a transcript in the court files. Katz later turned the gun on himself and was found dead by police when they arrived on the scene. "A lot of us, we play Madden to get out of the real world". "We've got to figure this out".

"We do take the attendees and the security as the two top priorities at our events", Wiltshire said.

"The nation once again looks to Florida with grief and heavy hearts", Giffords, who co-founded a gun violence prevention organization, said in a statement. One of the most tragic days ive experienced. "And it's yet another devastating indictment of this country's inability to keep our kids safe".

A game bar hosting an EA Games tournament has become the site of the latest USA mass shooting.

In the immediate aftermath of the shooting, there were immediate calls for heightened levels of security for future events.

Tony Montagnino, who goes by "G-Tech", said he was struck twice in the lower body: "One went through". "So, it's just.just sad it wasn't in this event".
