    It occurred at the Madden 2019 tournament in Jacksonville, FL. in the past hour or so. One of my wife's family members from FL sent her a Twitter in which you could hear the shots and the panic. I counted about 24 shots I could hear. It seemed to be the same light caliber weapon; semi automatic from what I could tell.

    On Sunday, a shooting occurred during the Madden 19 TournamentGLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville, Florida. According to reports, the shooter has been killed after gunning down at least four people and injuring 10 others.

    The Jacksonville Sheriff's Department has called the incident a "mass shooting" in a tweet.

    Jacksonville police say the suspected shooter died at the scene, while many were in lockdown at the marketplace.

    Police said that many people are still hiding at the scene. "We are finding many people hiding in locked areas at The Landing. 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. #TheLandingMassShooting," the office wrote on Twitter.

    According to Complexity Gaming, organizer of the Madden video game tournament at the GLHF Game Bar, "there appears to have been a shooting at the event."

    The Sheriff Department has confirmed that there have been multiple fatalities.

    Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry is reportedly in contact with Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams regarding the shooting at the Madden Tournament, according to the City of Jacksonville's verified Twitter account.

    The incident comes just two days after one person was killed and two others injured in a shooting at a high school football game in Jacksonville.
    -------------------------------------------------------------

    More information from the Los Angeles Times:
    Sources told News4Jax, a Jacksonville broadcast station, that at least four people had been fatally shot, and 11 total.

    The shooter was a gamer who was competing in the tournament and lost, according to Steven "Steveyj" Javaruski, one of the competitors.

    The shooter "targeted a few people" and shot at least five victims before killing himself, Javaruski told The Times in a direct message on Twitter.

    The gunman killed two or three people "that I saw," Javaruski said.

    Shooter was a disgruntled gamer who lost at the tournament.

    The gunman who shot dead four people at a Florida video tournament Sunday was a disgruntled gamer who had played there and lost, a competitor said.

    The shooter “targeted a few people” and shot them before killing himself, gamer Steven “Steveyj” Javaruski told the Los Angeles Times in a direct message on Twitter.

    The gunman killed two or three people “that I saw,” Javaruski added.

    Madden Gunman Held "for nearly 100 days" at Controversial Boot Camp



    The man behind a deadly shooting at a Florida video game tournament had previously been hospitalized for mental illness, according to court records in his home state of Maryland reviewed by The Associated Press.

    Divorce filings from the parents of 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore say that as an adolescent he was twice hospitalized in psychiatric facilities and was prescribed antipsychotic and antidepressant medications.

    The records show Katz’s parents disagreed on how to care for their troubled son, with his father claiming his estranged wife was exaggerating symptoms of mental illness as part of their long and bitter custody battle. The couple divorced in 2007.
    The suspect’s father, Richard Katz of Baltimore, and his mother, Elizabeth Katz of Columbia, Maryland, did not respond to phone messages Sunday or Monday. Efforts by the AP to reach them at their homes were also unsuccessful.

    The Howard County, Maryland, divorce filings say David Katz played video games obsessively as a young adolescent, often refusing to go to school or bathe. Elizabeth Katz, a toxicologist at the Department of Agriculture, said she confiscated some of her son’s gaming equipment after finding him playing in the wee hours.


    Elizabeth Katz said her youngest son had increasing difficulty concentrating following his parents’ split. A judge awarded custody of the boy to his mother, with visitation rights to the father.

    At times David “curled up into a ball,” refused to attend school and sobbed, she said. She asserted that her ex-husband instructed David not to take Risperidal – an anti-psychotic medication prescribed to him. The father claimed in court filings that David was not “diagnosed as psychotic.”

    He missed large stretches of school while under his mother’s supervision. He was admitted to the nearby Sheppard Pratt mental health system for about 12 days in late 2007. Court documents say a psychiatrist at that time administered antidepressants. He later spent about 13 days at Potomac Ridge, a mental health services facility in Rockville.


    Richard Katz, a NASA engineer, said his ex-wife had “an obsession with using mental health professionals and in particular psychiatric drugs to perform the work that parents should naturally do.” He said she routinely gave false information to mental health care providers. He described one incident in which his son was handcuffed by police after locking himself in his mother’s car in an attempt to avoid going to a mental health appointment with her.

    Federal law requires gun buyers to disclose whether they have ever been involuntarily committed to a mental institution. Maryland law prevents someone from passing a background check to buy guns if they were either involuntarily committed for any period of time or voluntarily admitted to a psychiatric facility for at least 30 consecutive days. Katz’s two known hospitalizations as an adolescent did not reach that threshold.

    “It appears that these disqualifications did not apply to David Katz,” said Daniel Webster, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research.

    In recent weeks, Katz legally purchased the two handguns he carried from a gun store in Baltimore, the sheriff said.


    By the time Katz was 15, the divorce records show, the father asserted that Elizabeth Katz “routinely” called the police for “trivial matters.” In a transcript of a 2010 phone call, the mother phoned a 911 dispatcher, accusing David of “abusing” her by coming home late after a visitation with his father. She then insisted he was “assaulting” her by trying to gain control of the cable cord to the television. She complained to the dispatcher that he was rolling his eyes and laughing.

    The children are taken and held there against their will. There is no oversight by law enforcement or government agencies. There is a history of allegations against RedCliff and other facilities like it, and an unknown number of deaths have occurred at these institutions.

    A "conspiracy theorist" might suspect privately-owned, secluded boot camps like RedCliff Ascent to be the perfect setting for ongoing mind control programs.

    It's clear their "help" did nothing to prevent the bloodshed in Jacksonville.

    Not much. And it's so...average. Raised by a game, parents don't know what they're doing, resort to psychiatric treatment...that's about all it takes to go snuff a pile of other humans. Nothing will ever change if machines and institutions replace normal interaction...which they have.

    If the father is right, and I don't know that he is, the mother may be an example of Munchausen by proxy, a condition where the caregiver gains attention by seeking medical help for exaggerated or made up conditions of a child.

    Add: my post was meant to be in regards to ichingcarpenter's post #7.
