Shooting in Jacksonville, Florida
Two people were killed on Sunday when a maniac shot up a gaming tournament in Florida. The maniac finished his attack when he turned the gun on himself.
David Katz, 24, of Baltimore, Maryland, is believed to be the gunman, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said. Katz used a single handgun to carry out the shooting and died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, he said. Williams described Katz as a white male who was attending the gaming event. He did not know if Katz knew the victims.
Nine others were wounded by gunfire and two others were injured as they fled the shooting, Williams said. They are all in stable condition.
Here’s the really creepy part:
Gunshots can be heard in recordings from the tournament on the bar’s Twitch account, which was streaming the competition. Williams said investigators were reviewing the footage as evidence and encouraged the public to turn in any additional videos that could help with the investigation.
The shooter was a regular gaming tournament player, and was listed as a champion in 2017. The anti-gun posse was out in force immediately, before waiting for any facts to be released. “Congress must stop stalling and act to protect Americans from the gun violence epidemic, and ensure no other family or community has to endure this unspeakable pain. Every day it fails to act is a stain on our nation,” said Nancy Pelosi. CBS News did not include a statement from any Second Amendment group in their story. Go figure.
Police are investigating the shooter’s home and circumstances in Baltimore.
