The parents of the man suspected of shooting up a video gaming tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, over the weekend had desperately sought psychiatric help for him for years after he repeatedly displayed troubling behavior. David Katz, 24, is reported to have been “extremely hostile” toward his mother, would go days without washing, and once punched a hole through a bedroom door to retrieve video-game controllers his mom had taken from him. The Baltimore Sun reports his parents tried psychiatric care in Maryland, enrolled him in public and private schools, and sent him to Utah for a therapeutic wilderness school for teens. The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said Katz shot and killed two people and injured 10 others before taking his own life Sunday during the Madden football video-game tournament.
