In a press conference held later in the afternoon, Jacksonville sheriff Mike Williams stated that 3 people were killed, including the suspect. Nine people were transported to the hospital, seven of them with gunshot rooms. 

Sheriff Williams also identified the suspected shooter as David Katz, a 24 year-old man from Baltimore. Williams also confirmed Katz was attending the event as a competitor.
