Listen, I hate to bring the hammer of reality down on you like this, but I don't know how someone gets to your age without learning that correlation and causation aren't the same thing. What kinda logic bombs are you gonna be dropping on us next? "100% of shooters drink water at some point in their lives, therefore water is satanic."
Young lady what you seem to be forgetting is that you can use a correlation study to rule out a relationship between two variables.

Before I was Saved™ by the Blood of the Lamb I was a working scientist (social psychology). Now, if you have had an education in the philosophy of science you will know that the object of the scientific method is to rule out the hypothesis (and accept H0).

So by doing a correlational study you can rule out (in the case video games having a causal role in mass shootings).

Know that there is a correlation means that you cannot say with any certainty that these schoolboy killers have not been playing video games.

I understand that that may not sound convincing but consider this.

Luke 11:34-36 The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness. Take heed therefore that the light which is in thee be not darkness. If thy whole body therefore be full of light, having no part dark, the whole shall be full of light, as when the bright shining of a candle doth give thee light

So you see the sight of people being killed on screen in mindlessly violent games the Sonics the Hedgehogs and the Pac Mans enters through the eyes and causes a darkness of the sound that all bad people (atheists, homers, joos etc) have in spades.

Then we have:

Psalm 5:5 "The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity."

This means anyone who does not follow the Bible(KJV1611) by playing video games is an idiot.

So there you have it. Both science and the Bible(KJV1611) disagree with you.

Jesus wins again.

1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

Revelation 22:15 For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Leviticus 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them.
