Fatal Shooting at Game Tournament [Updated]

Police confirm "multiple fatalities" in a Jacksonville, FL bar after a shooting at a Madden NFL gaming tournament that was being streamed on Twitch, reports The New York Times. The video of the livestream from the GLHF Bar reportedly cut off before the gunfire, but it could be heard on the audio. One gunman is said to be dead, but police are warning those in the area to stay put while SWAT does a building-by-building search, suggesting this is still considered an active shooter situation. A tweet from EA SPORTS has a preliminary comment and a follow-up shortly after reflects the gravity of what went down: "This is a horrible situation, and our deepest sympathies go out to all involved." Here's the Times' account of what happened:
The shooting happened at the GLHF Game Bar, which was hosting a tournament that viewers could watch on Twitch, a gaming network owned by Amazon.

A video clip shared on Twitter, which has since been taken down, showed the football video game Madden on a television screen.

Someone playing as the Atlanta Falcons appeared to have scored, and was kicking off. Tournament commentators remarked that the players were so good that it would not be easy to knock anyone out of the tournament.

Then the sound of gunfire begins. Several shots are heard, one after another.

“Run run run run run pass run run run,” one viewer said in a comment stream.

Then as the shots sound, commenters repeatedly said “oh my god.”

“Is there a shooting?” a viewer asked.

“That’s a gun,” said another.

The video then cut off.

Update: CNN's report on the news includes the video from the live feed, with the obvious warning that this is disturbing.
Update 2: Subsequent reporting details the casualties, saying three are dead, including the shooter, and that nine are wounded. The gunman reportedly took his own life.

Also, the solution is glaringly obvious: gun control.

Prohibition works. That's why there are no drugs or prostitutes in America.
