A statement from EA CEO Andrew Wilson confirms that the company will be performing a "comprehensive review" of its safety protocols in the meantime. David Katz was hospitalized at least twice, but Daniel Webster, who directs the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research, says his treatment wasn't enough to disqualify him.

Following the shooting in Jacksonville on Sunday, EA has cancelled the remaining qualifiers for its Madden Classic tournament. Katz participated in the tournament, but at some point he reportedly brought two handguns into the bar and specifically targeted his fellow gamers.

Instead the 24-year-old was eliminated, according to witnesses, who say he later returned with a handgun and opened fire.

City religious leaders will hold a prayer service Wednesday evening at The Jacksonville Landing to remember those slain and wounded in a mass shooting at the downtown mall three days ago.

The two men killed in the attack were identified as 22-year-old Elijah Clayton of Woodland Hills, Calif., and 28-year-old Taylor Robertson of West Virginia.

In a YouTube interview published by EA Sports, Robertson said he had played Madden NFL since he was 10 and started playing competitively a few years ago.

"You are not going to see much emotion from our guy", said the announcer. "I've been shot. I'm shot,"' said the person who took the video.

Gjoka tweeted: "The tourney just got shot up".

President Trump offered condolences to the victims of the shooting during a dinner with Christian leaders on August 27.

Under federal law, people are generally prohibited from acquiring guns if they have ever been involuntarily committed to a psychiatric facility. "Please take time to support each other through this challenging time".

In the wake of last February's deadly shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, the Trump administration initially appeared open to conversations on common sense gun reforms.

"That's the kind of community we are, and we're so blessed and so fortunate to live here and to have people to lean on when something so senseless and tragic as this happens", Evans said. "I don't know what he was doing".

Krill said he fled the building before returning minutes later to check on his friends.

A video of the shooting that is now being examined by investigators captured a red dot that appeared to be a laser pointer trained on a player, according to the Associated Press; the player was identified by attendees as Clayton.

Williams said they did not include the shooter, who killed himself, in the number of victims.
