JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Ten lawsuits have been filed against the owners of a Florida outdoor mall where authorities say a gunman opened fire at an online video game tournament, killing two people, wounding several others and then fatally shooting himself.
  
The Florida Times-Union reports that nine of the lawsuits were filed earlier this month against The Jacksonville Landing and its owners. Another suit was filed several days after the Aug. 26 shooting.
  
A suit filed by the widow of one victim is claiming wrongful death, while the others seek damages for personal injury or negligence.
  
Authorities say 24-year-old David Katz, of Baltimore, shot up the "Madden NFL 19" qualifying tournament at a Chicago Pizza restaurant a day after losing. Rival gamers Taylor Robertson and Elijah Clayton were left dead.
