In a press conference, Florida City Sheriff Mike Williams said the suspect, David Katz, 24, of Baltimore, Maryland, committed suicide after the attack.

The official said that nine people were taken by ambulance to nearby medical centers and two others did so by their own means and that their condition is stable.

Nine of the injured people were hit by bullets, he explained.

Williams reported that the suspect, who was participating in this tournament of the Madden football game, used “at least” a gun and that they are still investigating the possible motives of the crime.

The sheriff indicated that the venue where this competition was held, the Southeast Qualifier for the Madden NFL Championship Series, whose finals will be held next October in Las Vegas, was not full but there is a large group of people inside.

The venue where the tournament was held, the GLHF Game Bar, is located in Jacksonville Landing, a popular shopping center with around twenty restaurants and some 70 stores and visited by thousands of locals and tourists every year.
