Video game maker cancels three tournaments after shooting

"He's a well-known competitor", said one unnamed gamer about Katz during the Jacksonville tournament, according to The Tampa Bay Times.

David Katz, 24, played online using the name "Bread".

The incident happened during a Madden video game tournament at the GLHF Game Bar.

Katz was from Baltimore and travelled to take part in the event.

Peter Moore, CEO of the Liverpool soccer team and the former chief competition officer at EA, where he organized the company's competitive gaming division, wrote "my heart goes out to my former colleagues that were on site, the competitive players that I got to know, and all of their families".

An announcer at a previous competition said getting Katz to talk about anything was like "pulling teeth".

"He is not here to make friends".

The records show Katz's parents disagreed deeply on how to care for their troubled son. I went to shake his hand and just tell him good game and he just looked at me.
