The police identified the Florida shooting suspect as David Katz, a 24-year-old white male who had travelled from Baltimore, Maryland to join the tournament. He carried out the shooting with a semi-automatic rifle before killing himself.

Katz was listed as a 2017 championship winner by the games maker EA Sports.

Three people, including the gunman himself, were killed in a shooting inside a gaming bar in the northern Florida city of Jacksonville, local police said Sunday.

Police say Katz killed himself and his body was found near the bodies of two shot dead at The Landing, a popular riverside shopping and restaurant spot in Jacksonville.
