A mass shooting at a Madden NFL video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday left three dead, including the gunman, and 11 injured.
Officials identified the two victims who died as Elijah Clayton, 22, and Taylor Robertson, 27. The suspected gunman David Katz, a 24-year-old gamer attending the tournament, died from a self-inflicted gunshot, police said.
The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office confirmed that Elijah Clayton, 22, and Taylor Robertson, 27, were killed in the shooting at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida on Sunday.
Friends and fellow gamers had previously named the two men to the Los Angeles Times, Action News Jax, and Reuters, and authorities confirmed their identities Monday afternoon.
Clayton’s relatives released a statement to reporters in Jacksonville saying the family was “devastated by yet another senseless act of gun violence.” He went by the gaming alter ego TrueBoy.
His cousin, Brandi Pettijohn, said Clayton “did not believe in violence” and had “never even had a fistfight,” according to the Associated Press.
