Jacksonville Shooter Targeted Other Gamers

KTLA — The suspect who opened fire during a Madden video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday actively targeted other gamers in his shooting spree, Sheriff Mike Williams said.

David Katz, a 24-year-old gamer from Baltimore, Maryland, was in town for the tournament at GLHF Game Bar at the Jacksonville Landing, a downtown shopping and dining complex. He walked past patrons in other parts of the restaurant and then opened fire on his fellow competitive gamers before killing himself, Williams said.

The shooting left two people dead, 10 injured from gunshots and one person with a non-gunshot injury, Williams said. All of the injured are expected to survive, he said.

“As bad as this is, it could have been much worse,” Williams said. Continue reading →

Police on Saturday charged a 17-year-old male with four counts of first-degree murder and seven counts of attempted murder in a mass shooting at a school and home in a remote aboriginal community in northern Saskatchewan.

The alleged suspect can’t be named under Canada’s Youth Criminal Justice Act.

La Loche RCMP said nine people were shot in the school, including  21-year-old, Marie Janvier, a teacher’s aide who died at the scene and a male teacher identified as 35-year-old Adam Wood, who died in a hospital. The seven people wounded in Friday’s shooting at the school are hospitalized.

14 Dead In San Bernadino Mass Shooting 

  

Horrible news is breaking out of California that approximately 14 people are dead and 17 are wounded after a mass shooting at a holiday party. 

According to the LA Times: 

Dressed in black masks and tactical gear, armed with long guns and pistols, they entered a holiday party for county health workers in San Bernardino as it was in full swing. Before they fled, they had killed 14 people and wounded 17 others.

When it was over, a man and woman connected to the assault were dead. One body lay in the street, blood pooling. Another was recovered from the vehicle. 

Late Wednesday night, San Bernardino police Chief Jarrod Burguan identified the people killed in the gun battle with police as Syed Rizwan Farook, a 28-year-old American citizen, and 27-year-old Tashfeen Malik. Police did not know where Malik was born or where she had lived.

Public records show that a Syed Farook was employed by the San Bernardino County Health Department as an environmental health specialist, but it was not clear whether that was the same person involved in the shooting. The party was a gathering of employees of the health department.

Farhan Khan, who was identified as Farook’s brother-in-law, struggled to explain the tragic shooting during a news conference held by the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Anaheim late Wednesday.

While federal sources have told The Times that Farook left the party after an altercation, investigators said Wednesday night that the motive for the mass shooting was unclear. 

“Is this a terrorist incident? We do not know,” said David Bowdich, assistant director of the FBI’s Los Angeles field office. He later said that terrorism had not been ruled out as a motive. 

Smh, these kinds of sick atrocities seem to sadly be becoming the new normal.

Rest in Peace to the innocent people who lost their lives! Read more on LA Times
