A gunman who attacked a Florida video game tournament was so obsessed with his pastime he would refuse to bathe or go to school, say court records.
David Katz, 24, had a history of mental illness, according to his parents’ divorce filing in his home state.
His mother once confiscated his console and locked it in her room, and he punched a hole in the door, she said.
Katz killed two people in the city of Jacksonville on Sunday before fatally shooting himself, police say.
According to court papers in Maryland, he had a longstanding feud with his mother, and had twice been hospitalised for mental illness.
