  • Authorities discovered eight bodies in different locations of Quintana Roo

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.

Both Krill and Delph - a 35-year-old single father who works as a global enterprise adviser for Verizon in Columbus, Ohio - flew to Jacksonville over the weekend to compete in the qualifying tournament in hopes of advancing to the final competition in Las Vegas, which is scheduled to take place in October.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams says Katz "clearly targeted" other competitive gamers, walking past patrons in other parts of the restaurant and opening fire in a back room.

The sheriff's office identified the dead as 22-year-old Elijah Clayton of Woodland Hills, California, and 28-year-old Taylor Robertson of Giles, West Virginia.

Katz also went to a wilderness treatment program for troubled teenagers in 2009 when he was 15, and he also received treatment provided by a Maryland school district.

Police officers cordon off a street outside The Jacksonville Landing after a shooting during a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida August 26, 2018. As long as there's tight security next time, they're open to returning to another public video game tournament, they said.

Krill and Delph said EA Sports has not contacted them or any of their friends about the incident.

Maryland State troopers are responsible for investigating gun purchases in Katz's home state, but they're not talking for now to avoid interfering with the investigation in Jacksonville. Amadeo was shot in the foot, he has undergone surgery and is in stable condition.

"After #Parkland you & your father had an opportunity to affect real change in gun reform".

Since Sunday's shooting, the family has told investigators that David Katz suffered from mental health issues, according to a law enforcement source who described the family as being very cooperative with investigators. The game's maker, EA Sports, lists a David Katz as a 2017 championship victor. I figured I was the biggest person and it was just in the moment. "When our community was directly impacted by the shooting in Annapolis this summer, I said that more than silent reflection is needed to end the epidemic of gun violence in our country, and I will say that again today". If he was happy, you knew he was happy.

Many said he was well known on the circuit but that he kept himself to himself and did not mingle.

"People were falling over each other trying to get out of there", Delph said.

Several other people were taken to hospitals. "I heard yelling, I heard "Help me, I'm shot.'"Alemon said he hid in bathroom for about 10 minutes before fleeing the bar when he was certain the shooting was over".

Sunday's tournament was held at the GLHF Game Bar inside Chicago Pizza in downtown Jacksonville. "In 'Madden, ' you never get so mad at a loss that you would want to do that".
