A second person with a Milwaukee connection was shot Sunday during the incident in Jacksonville. Alexander Madunic of Milwaukee says he was shot in the calf during the second round of shots fired.

"I knew I got shot instantly. I just said in my head, I'm like please don't shoot me anymore, please, just stop. I thought I was going to die," he told ABC News.

"I don't want to get shot by a video game like.. get killed over playing Madden. It's not even like it's a war game or anything, it's a sports game."
