Commentators at previous gaming tournament give chilling description of Jacksonville shooter

US police cars

Three people have been killed and several injured in a shooting at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

Police officers cordon off a street outside The Jacksonville Landing after a shooting during a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida August 26, 2018.

"We offer our deepest sympathies to their families, to those injured and everyone affected by this", the company said.

Multiple media reports and social media postings confirmed Taylor Robertson, 27, of Ballard, as one of the two men shot and killed.

Investigators believe Katz was in Jacksonville for the Madden 19 tournament, a video game competition and that he might have stayed in town Saturday night.

When asked about moving on to the semi-finals, Katz said that he considered himself to be "one of the better players". We are committed to supporting Taylor and Elijah's families through this hard time, and we send our deepest sympathies to their loved ones, to those injured yesterday, and everyone affected. Williams said the lone suspect is dead.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives said on Twitter that it was also "responding to a reported mass shooting in downtown Jacksonville". "[He was here] all weekend". "He had shades on, he didn't speak to anybody".

Both men were very active in the Madden competitive scene with Robertson having won Madden Classic last season.

The founder and CEO of CompLexity Gaming, Jason Lake, told CNN: "To have someone walk into an event like this that's all about good sportsmanship and teamwork and just good vibes, and do something like this, it's heartbreaking. He didn't say anything".

Police located and searched Katz's Jacksonville hotel room and federal agents searched his home in Maryland. "Follow @JSOPIO for the latest information regarding the #TheLandingMassShooting", the FBI Baltimore Twitter account said. "Then we heard repeat shots and we took off running", said Williams, who participated in the tournament earlier.

"He is not here to make friends".

EA Sports condemned what it termed a "senseless act of violence", and said it was supporting authorities in their investigation.

The NFL said it was "shocked and deeply saddened by the horrific tragedy".
