In a nation where lawmakers continue their refusal to do anything that would curb the occurrence of mass shootings and overall gun violence, it appears that an online streaming and social media service Twitch on Sunday afternoon captured live the sound of multiple gun shots during a competitive video-gaming event at a large downtown complex in Jacksonville, Florida.
“I am literally so lucky. The bullet hit my thumb… Worst day of my life.”
According to the Jacksonville Times-Union, citing local police, “multiple people are dead, including at least one suspect, after a mass shooting Sunday afternoon at the Jacksonville Landing.” The newspaper reported “a chaotic scene” at the city’s iconic Downtown Landing, a sprawling area of shops, venues, and restaurants near the waterfront:
The clip of the video shows at least two players competing when the sound of numerous shots can be heard. Then there is sound of background commotion before the feed to the game goes out and the video ends.
As of this writing, the video has been viewed more than 700,000 times.
