Mass shooting leaves multiple dead in Jacksonville, FL, authorities say

27 August 2018

Authorities said they were unsure if there is a second suspect, but police appeared to be scouring the area by land, air and sea and have advised residents to stay away from the area. "We believe the suspect to be 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore, Maryland".

The sheriff's office says multiple people have been killed in the shooting.

According to the San Diego Union-Tribune a shooter opened fire during a Madden video game tournament in Jacksonville Sunday afternoon killing four people and injuring nearly a dozen others.

Variety reports the video, taken at the GLHF Game Bar in the Landing along the St. Johns River, was aired live via Twitch.

Three people, including the gunman, were killed in the shooting, and 11 more were injured.

A statement said: "Complexity is not one of the event organizers in Jacksonville". The victims ranged in age from 20 to 35 years old. The most critical victim was shot in the chest, but is expected to survive.

The shooter "targeted a few people" and shot at least five victims before killing himself, Javaruski said.

Apart from these specs, the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 comes with a fingerprint sensor, iris scanner, and facial recognition support. But if it's new you're looking for, Samsung's Galaxy Note 9 isn't the phone that should be on your radar.

At the time of the shooting the livestream was showing in-game footage rather than the crowd, but the panic of those in the room could be heard amid the gunfire. The screen shows the controller has been disconnected as the shooting continues. "Don't hesitate to secure your spot", the post read in part. "Then we heard repeat shots and we took off running", said Williams, who participated in the tournament earlier.

People were in the Jacksonville Landing area prior to the shooting, and police said they understood many were hiding in locked areas after the shooting was reported.

Drini Gjoka, who was competing in the event, tweeted about the shooting in the immediate aftermath.

Gjoka tweeted, "I will never take anything for granted ever again".

President Donald Trump has been briefed on the situation, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

Florida Governor Rick Scott, meanwhile, confirmed he had offered state support in the aftermath.
