"Oh, f***, what'd he shoot me with?" a person is heard saying.

Immediately after, people are heard screaming and running in fear as Katz continues to fire.

The two men who died have been identified as Taylor 'SpotMePlzzz' Robertson, 27, of Ballard, West Virginia and Eli 'Trueboy' Clayton, 22, of Woodland Hills, California. Robertson was married and was a father to a young boy.

Before the horrific incident, Robertson and Clayton were known as two of the most talented gamers in the country, and were often spotted at tournaments such as the one in Jacksonville.

After killing the men, Katz took his own life.

One of the gamers injured, Drini Gjoka, 19, quickly took to Twitter after the tragedy, expressing how grateful and lucky he was to be alive.

"The tourney just got shot up. I'm leaving and never coming back," he wrote.

"I am literally so lucky. The bullet hit my thumb," added Gjoka. "Worst day of my life."

Authorities are still investigating David Katz's motive for the deadly shooting.
