David Katz was a disgruntled gamer who shot and killed two people, injured eleven others, and took his own life during the Madden 19 tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday.

A video clip from an earlier tournament in April 2017 recently surfaced, which shows the 24-year-old gamer from Baltimore looking like an intense competitor devoid of any human emotion.

But it's the casual comment made by an announcer in the video that is making people shiver a year later.

Tournament announcers from a local TV station referred to Katz by his online moniker and commented on his playing style, saying, "You are not going to see much emotion from our guy Bread."

"He keeps to himself. He's a man of business.

The announcer added:

"He's not here to make friends."

The shooting took place inside Chicago Pizza, a restaurant with a video game bar, during a regional qualifier for gamers hoping to make it to the national championship in Las Vegas.

Police didn't cite a motive for the shooting, but the Los Angeles Times reported the violence transpired after Katz lost the tournament.

The carnage claimed the lives of "Madden" community members Elijah Clayton and Taylor Robertson, before Katz turned the gun on himself.

Katz had a history of mental issues as a teenager. His parents' divorce papers indicated that he was treated for Schizophrenia, Antipsychotic, and antidepressant drugs, according to Inside Edition.


The announcer from last year's Madden 17 also said, "To even get him to open up and talk to you about anything is like pulling teeth, man."

People were disturbed by the revisited cliche within the context of Sunday's tragedy.







Madden NFL is a popular video game developed for EA Sports and named after Pro Football Hall of Famer John Madden.

The Southeast qualifier that took place in Jacksonville offered $5,000 in prize money and gave those who finished first and second a chance to compete for $165,000 in Las Vegas.

According to the Daily Beast, EA sports called the shooting a "horrible situation" and a "senseless act of violence that we strongly condemn."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
