A gunman opened fire on Sunday afternoon at a Madden 19 tournament at Chicago Pizza at Jacksonville Landing in Jacksonville, FL. The gunman shot 11 victims before killing himself, according to the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. Two of the victims died and two additional victims sustained non-shooting injuries.

The suspect, described as a 24-year-old white male from Baltimore, used at least one handgun during the shooting. The suspect, who’s name will not be mentioned by SouthBMore.com, was a resident of the HarborView community in Federal Hill. He was believed to have stayed in a Jacksonville hotel on Saturday night.

Witnesses have told several news outlets that the suspect was recently eliminated from the video game tournament.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said at a press conference, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families who were all affected by this senseless act of violence here today. I ask that you please pray for these families as they deal with this tragedy in the coming days and weeks.”
