    ‘Mass shooting’ reported at Jacksonville Landing in Florida, police say


    http://www.foxnews.com/us/2018/08/2...cksonville-landing-in-florida-police-say.html

    Not a lot of details yet...
    Prayers for the victims and families.

    Local folks on FB are stating there are 4 dead, 11 injured.
    There was a Madden ‘19 tournament going on.
    Given the location and scheduled event, this could be gang related or targeted.
    Let’s see as more info comes out.

    ETA: 3:12 PM. Suspect dead. Unknown if additional suspects. SWAT teams sweeping looking for folks hiding in locked down areas.

    Crazy. I felt an overwhelming sense of a mass shooting coming recently. Guess it’s not too hard to “predict” in this day and time.

    Prayers sent!

    The video is pretty disturbing. You can see the red dot on one of the players chests then gun shots. Then you hear the guy ask the shooter what he shot him with then you hear him execute the guy.

    Prayers for the afflicted.

    School is starting up too so tell your kids to keep an eye out and on their toes to anything amiss.

    One more psycho scumbag dead. Unfortunately he evidently killed people before he died.

    That was gang activity. Not that it makes it any better in the long run...
    Yeah rough weekend in NE FL. Glad I’m down in Orlando hitting theme parks with my kids.

    4 dead, 10 injured is what I'm seeing on a gaming board. Not sure if the "4" includes the shooter, usually does though.

    Another gun-free zone.

    Stupid Mass Victim Zones, stupid property/business owners who declare their businesses to be SMVZ’s should be held liable by the victim’s families.

    Prayers for the victims.

    So this guy? (Last year's champion) His nickname is Bread.

    Not confirmed. But word is he didn't take losing very well.

    Proceed with caution. Early information is often wrong.

    Ok. Apparently reality, fantasy and the virtual world are all coming together.

    Asswipe who killed the mother and daughter was triggered by the world he lived in and now this.

    I’m not generally in favor of gun free zones. That said, when your business involves shooting stuff with fake guns, there is no reason to allow real guns on the premises. It seems to me that they were stupidly relying on signs rather than checking every entrant to their business with magnetometers.

    Well, local LE has confirmed the shooter was a white male, and LATimes has reported via Twitter that the shooter was a participant in the tournament. So even though unconfirmed, the “Bread” rumor is pretty credible.
