Treasure Coach Teacher Among Injured In Jacksonville Shooting

A high school teacher and coach from the Treasure Coast is among those injured after a gunman opened fire during a video game competition in Jacksonville.

The shooting resulted in the killing of two people before the gunman turned the weapon on himself.

Authorities say Dalton Kent returned to Port St. Lucie overnight after being released from the hospital shortly after the shooting inside Jacksonville’s Landing Complex during a Madden football game tournament. 

The 22-year-old, who teaches history and severs as a basketball coach, was shot in the shin.

Nine people with gunshot wounds and two others hurt during shooting were being treated at area hospitals, all in stable condition. 

The lone suspect in the shooting died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said at a Sunday evening news conference.

Officials believe the gunman is 24-year-old David Katz from Baltimore.  

Katz was reportedly in Jacksonville for the tournament. It's unknown if Katz knew the victims. 

The games maker, EA Sports, lists a David Katz as a 2017 championship winner.
