NRA spokeswoman calls for end to gun-free zones after Jacksonville shooting

Three people died in a mass shooting during a video game tournament at a waterfront shopping complex in the northern Florida city of Jacksonville, police said Sunday. Day shooting in early 2017 killed a 16-year-old boy - it was believed that was retaliation for a shooting that had happened earlier in the month on Laura Street during Art Walk, a street festival with vendors and musicians that attracts big crowds into downtown.

The shooting comes two days after a gunman killed one person and injured two at a high school football game, which Florida Sen.

It's unclear what the motive was in the attack or whether Katz was specifically targeting the victims.

The two Madden 19 competitors who were killed were Eli Clayton, who gamed under the name "Trueboy", and Taylor Robertson, who used the name "SpotMePlzzz", according to FOX 30.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said at a news conference after the rampage Sunday afternoon that nine other people were wounded by gunfire and two others had been hurt in the chaos as people sought to flee.

Williams said initial reports of four dead were revised to three dead, including the shooter. David Katz grew up in Columbia, Maryland, a suburb midway between Baltimore and Washington D.C.

The shooting took place at 1:34 p.m.at the Jacksonville Landing at the GLHF Game Bar.

The latest rampage occurred amid a debate over US gun laws that was given fresh impetus by the massacre in February of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said President Donald Trump had been briefed on the attack and the White House was monitoring the situation.
