Sounds as if the live gamers were targetted.

At an event like that the gamers are all invited, usually indicating that they are very good. Either they will have been invited on ability or will have won pre-tournaments competitions. Some will be pro players who are in sponsored teams.

@spunko2010

will be probably right - some nerd.

A poster on the gaming chat Derek Jones made a comment that could indicate this - "I'm in the mood to kill someone today", was also apparently at the tournament.

Current live stream. Also NSFW with same vid clipped.

Sounds like a repeat of the  Devin Thompson killings.

[GTA != real life.  If so, we'll have a pile of lawsuits against FPS companies in the near future]

That's simply callous: she is using people's deaths to further her political career.

She is a politician. That’s what they do. Craven bastards to a man (woman).

I don't think you can tar them all with the same brush.

The one who still sticks in my mind for her amorality was the one who saw 9/11 as a PR opportunity: "a good day to bury bad news".

Looks like gamers were targetted. Reports that his talented gamer has been murdered.

Sounds like he was beating everyone at the tournament.

Apparently the live feed showed a laser target on him, so people are claiming.

Edit:

Ah, he was the young man in the red hoddie in the above video link - right at the end you can see the laser sight on him.

Video here:

Feck at that laser!

Do people gamble on these things?  Somebody standing to lose big money making sure that all bets are cancelled maybe.

No idea about gambling. Probably.

But lots of serious money the higher up the tournament lists you go. Some of the live game streamers can be making 6 figures per year.

This link will give you an idea of money earned by certain players from tournaments last year.

During these tournaments the audience sees the game from a variety of POVs - basically you watch it from one gamer, then another, back to another and so on.

It looks as if the shooter waited until the red hoodie gamer had just won a game, his winning move was being played back live to everyone with him in the corner of the screen and, well, then killed him. He was deliberately targetted and perhaps so because he was so good.

As a gamer I would like to show my disdain for the shooter.

The conspiracy nuts are pointing out that there are US state primary elections this week in Florida.

 

Florida hasnt had an incel rebellion yet, has it? Very strange for a state that seems to lead the way in nutjobs.

Hmmm gamer feud ? 

live broadcast.

Agunman opened fire at a live-streamed video game tournament in Florida on Sunday, killing two before turning the gun on himself.

Eleven others were shot and wounded at Jacksonville Landing, the Sheriff Mike Williams said.

Police identified the suspect as David Katz, a 24-year-old from Baltimore, who used at least one handgun.

"There were three deceased individuals at the scene, one of those being the suspect, who took his own life," Sheriff Mike Williams told a news conference

"There were nine victims transported by JFRD (local fire and rescue) to area hospitals. Some of those have gunshot wounds. There were two additional gunshot victims that self-transported themselves to local hospitals."

I felt sorry for her,  she was only doing what they all do but for some reason they decided she had to be thrown in front of a bus.

Police refused to confirm local media reports that he began shooting after becoming angry following a loss at the gaming tournament.

Things get very heated in online gaming esp with headsets being used / taunts etc

not the first time its spilled over into real life

_TrueBoy had a huge following and may have taunted the guy in public on the live stream ?

The idea that someone who plays a game on a computer would have a “huge following” reinforces assertions that we are at end of Western civilisation phase.

Fluidity of gender and sexuality were synonymous with past civilisation collapses, for this one we can now add fluidity of reality.
