That audio is from the Madden football online tournament.

Courtesy of USA Today:

A SWAT team was sweeping through Jacksonville’s scenic riverfront Sunday after a shooting rampage during a Madden 19 video game tourney left multiple people dead and others wounded, authorities in the Florida city said.

“Mass shooting at the Jacksonville Landing. Stay far away from the area. The area is not safe at this time. STAY AWAY,” the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said in a tweet.

The sheriff’s office said there were “multiple fatalities” and that many other victims were transported to hospitals. One suspect was dead at the scene, and it was unknown whether there was a second shooter, the sheriff’s office said. A search was underway.

Multiple media outlets, including WJXT-TV, said four people were dead and several more wounded at the GLHF Game Bar. Authorities urged people hiding in the area call 911 so police can get them out.

“We are finding many people hiding in locked areas at The Landing,” the sheriff’s office said. “We ask you to stay calm, stay where you are hiding. SWAT is doing a methodical search inside The Landing. We will get to you. Please don’t come running out.”

Some of the reports suggest that this individual lost during the Madden tournament and suddenly started shooting at other participants. 

So now along with public schools, churches, malls, movie theaters, and country western music festivals, it appears that gaming tournaments are also a place where we cannot be safe from gun violence. 

Update: 


So it was a lone shooter, that is what I thought when I heard the audio.

Update 2: You have got to be fucking kidding me. 

So the NRA’s solution to this is that everybody should be packing heat, and every venue needs to have security. 

Got it.

    I wonder if those shot took a knee instead of standing for the Nation Anthem / British drinking song melody?

    David Katz: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know

    A witness told the Los Angeles Times that the shooter, identified as David Katz, had played in the tournament earlier and lost. Steven “Steveyj” Javaruski, who was another competitor in the tournament, told the newspaper the gunman came back to the event with a gun and “targeted a few people” before fatally shooting himself.

    Another witness, Javaris Long, told the Tampa Bay Times that the suspect was “nerdy” and got mad because he lost, so he went to his car, got his gun, came back and “started blasting everybody.”

    ‘The girl was “totally shocked that he would do this to her.” “This case is one of many in which boys and men have attacked girls and women for romantic and sexual rejection — attacks that sometimes leave women and girls dead. But there isn’t a “standardized format” for tracking this specific type of violence against women” “Girls don’t owe boys anything.”

    Katz Bought the guns two weeks ago..
    “David Katz, of Baltimore, Maryland, recently purchased a 9 mm pistol and .45-caliber handgun, along with extra ammunition, but only used one weapon in the attack.” “He had prior relationships with the other gamers, Williams added, because the group travels as a circuit.” “A livestream broadcasting the “Madden NFL 19″ tournament shows what appears to be a red dot flash across one of the victim’s chests seconds before the first shots ring out. The victims were later identified by local media as 24-year-old Taylor Robertson, of Ballard, West Virginia, and 21-year-old Eli Clayton of Woodland Hills, California.”
