The shooting occurred during an esports tournament in which gamers competed by playing “Madden NFL 2019.” Based on video from the incident, the players were broadcasting their performances on Twitch, a live-streaming platform, when the gunshots began.
The “Madden” tournament was being held at the GLHF Game Bar next to Chicago Pizza. The Jacksonville Landing, which is located along the St. Johns River, is home to restaurants, stores, and live entertainment.
