EA to Host Jacksonville Livestream Benefit Today
On August 26, tragedy struck in Jacksonville, Florida, when a shooting occurred at the GLHF gaming bar during Southeastern Qualifier for the Madden 19 Championship Series. The suspect shot and killed two players, 27-year-old Taylor "spotmeplzzz" Robertson and 22-year-old Eli "trueboy" Clayton. He injured another 11 before taking his own life.
As a way to help bring the community together, EA has announced a livestream tribute to pay respect to those who were killed and injured in the attack. The benefit will also raise money to help those effected.
Those wishing to donate to the cause can do so on EA's GoFundMe page, which has raised over $1 million as of this writing.
