Separately, EA has also donated $1 million to those victims. When it comes to the fund itself, the contributions “will go to the victims, including the families of Taylor Robertson, Elijah Clayton, and all those who were affected.”

EA also said that they’ll be hosting a livestream for the Jacksonville Tribute on September 6th.

“We’ve heard from so many of you that you would like to support the victims, and to show that this horrific event will not define us, but only serve to make our community stronger,” part of their statement read. “We’re already working with may of you to make this happen through the livestream.”

More details about the livestream will be announced soon, EA said.
