Software publisher Electronic Arts has canceled the remaining three qualifying events for its Madden Classic esports tournament following the deaths of two competitors at the tournament's opening event held Sunday in Jacksonville.

A man who said he defeated Katz in the tournament told CBS affiliate WJAX that Katz was a "well-known competitor", but that he kept to himself and didn't interact with anyone else at the weekend event. Katz participated in the tournament, but at some point he reportedly brought two handguns into the bar and specifically targeted his fellow gamers.

University of Maryland President Wallace D. Loh issued a public statement that referenced yet another mass shooting that occurred at a newspaper in Annapolis just a short drive away from Katz's hometown: "Our community grieves for the families of those who lost their lives in yesterday's horrific shooting in Jacksonville".

"To have it all ruined in one second by someone who just went over the edge, for whatever reason, it doesn't really matter, that's absolutely frightful", said Davis.

Morgan shared an announcement Monday on Twitter prior to the new details that confirmed the firm had been retained by the victims and said that the firm was of the mindset that the situation could've been avoided. Competitors were playing Madden NFL, EA's best-selling American Football title.

"@SirusTheVirusTV and @fitzmagic13 dad are heroes", said pro "Madden" player Jokeeee.

Katz would sometimes play under the name "Bread" or "RavensChamp" while competing in the national circuit of professional gamers who play "Madden NFL 19", the popular football game. "Their love of competition was evident through their participation in our events over the past few years".

About a week before the Florida shootings, Kivlen said, he was visiting San Diego and Clayton drove two and a half hours in rush hour traffic to meet him.

"He was the most humble human being to have the abilities and the talents that he did", Evans said.

"There could be anywhere from thousands, to millions, maybe even billions of dollars on the line just for the companies let alone the competitors", she said.
