Twitch livestream captures shooting at Madden tournament in harrowing video

A Twitch livestream from a Madden 19 video game tournament in Jacksonville appears to have captured the fatal shooting in an extremely harrowing video.

Video gamers were gathered at the Jacksonville Landing on Sunday for a tournament of the popular NFL-themed videogame. A Twitch livestream, which airs streams of videogames for spectators to watch simultaneously from different locations around the world, showed two gamers facing each other in the game. Suddenly a loud pop is heard in the background, followed by a few more. A few seconds later, the two players who were facing each other in the game disconnect, presumably to hide.

Multiple screams can be heard in the background (video here if you can handle it).

All together, about a dozen shots were fired. They came one at a time, likely indicating the perpetrator was not using an automatic firearm.
