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."

Insults come in many forms, most of them involving swear words or similar affronts. However, there is something to be said for a truly cutting remark made without the use of such language.

Some favorites are always old Victorian slang and insults. They just hit different. Something about telling an a-hole “you sir are an unlicked cub and your wife a sausage wallet" is just more satisfying. Although we do not recommend going around insulting people, the list of swear-free insults below will certainly get a chuckle.

Aging is a sneaky process. Most of us don't realize how old we've gotten until we find we are no longer able to do things the way we used to with ease when we were younger.

Like it or not, we've all met a liar or two. Some lies aren't so obvious either, and if the individual has a habit of lying regularly, then that's a sign that they could have a larger problem. Some lies are more innocent––we know those as "little white lies"––and typically don't harm anyone.

And some lies are just obvious and absurd––even entertaining. Why do people say these things? In truth (ha), the reasons might be complicated and the individual might not even be aware. We heard all about them after Redditor Mobile_Sturgeon asked the online community,

"What was the most obvious lie you've ever heard?"
