Terrifying Video Captures Audio of ‘Madden NFL 19’ Shooting in Jacksonville, Fla.

Disturbing footage has surfaced of a gunman opening fire during a “Madden NFL 19” livestream event in Jacksonville, Fla. According to the Jacksonville police department, there were “multiple fatalities,” including the suspect, after a mass shooting at the video game competition.

The tournament, which was held at GLHF Game Bar in the Landing along the St. Johns River, was broadcast on Twitch. Multiple loud gunshots can be heard over footage of gamers playing “Madden NFL 19.” As the controller disconnects, audio can be heard of an attendee saying, “F—, what is he shooting with?” More shots are fired, and screaming can be heard in the background.

A competitor in the tournament told the Los Angeles Times that the shooter was a player who lost and opened fire on others before taking his own life. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Department held a press conference following the shooting. Sheriff Mike Williams said the suspect is a white male and the department is “working to confirm his identity.”

EA Sports, the company behind “Madden NFL,” released a statement on Twitter saying, “We are aware of an incident at a sanctioned Madden Championship Series competition in Jacksonville. We are working with authorities to gather facts at this stage. This is a horrible situation, and our deepest sympathies go out to all involved.”
