Two people were killed and 11 others injured when a gunman opened fire Sunday at a popular waterfront mall in Jacksonville, Florida, where a video game tournament was being held. Graphic recordings from the scene captured gunshots ringing out and the screams of terrified patrons taking cover.
David Katz, 24, of Baltimore, Maryland, is 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.
The tournament for “Madden NFL 19” players was being held at the GLHF Game Bar, which shares space with a restaurant. The bar told CBS News in a Facebook message that all staff members and the owner were able to escape “untouched.”

May the VICTIMS rest in peace.
