    JACKSONVILLE, Florida, August 26, 2018 — Sunday afternoon, a gunman opened fired on gamers at a John Madden Football gaming event at GLHF (Good Luck Have Fun) game bar at the Jacksonville Landing. According to 7:00 press conference with Mayor Curry and Sheriff Williams, two are dead (which is down from the previously reported four casualties) and nine others injured. An earlier report at 5:00 p.m. by First Coast News held that five victims were in good condition, one victim in serious condition, and the suspect dead from a self-inflicted wound.

    The suspect has been verified as a white male, and it has been reported that there is no second shooter. Eyewitnesses are saying that it was one of the gamers who opened fire at the event.

    There is a Live Stream video in which you can hear about eleven to twelve gunshots go off. Police are urging citizens not to go downtown even right now, as the investigation is still ongoing. Some victims were taken to UF Shands, some shot more than once. Some victims are from out of state, their ages ranging from 20-35. President Trump has offered all federal resources to Governor Scott.

    My fiancee’s brother was in a nearby building at the time of the shooting, where he reported seeing people running frantically out of the Jacksonville Landing. It was a day unlike we have seen in our city in many years. Absolutely shocking…for our entire city. This display of evil is heartbreaking, please pray for the victims and for the families and friends of those who’ve been shot, as the need of our Heavenly Father’s hand in this is immense. God bless all the first responders and any who have helped in this situation. And may God bless the Bold City bigtime right now.
