The New York founder of a video game website  believes tens of thousands of players of online shooter games  participated in a 24-hour cease-fire to show love and respect to the Connecticut school shooting victims.

Bronx resident Antwand Pearman said he had recieved mostly positive messages.

The GamerFitNation founder said some player groups with thousands of members told him they took part in the cease-fire.

A gunman killed 20 children and six adults at a Newtown, Connecticut, elementary school.

The 29-year-old Pearman has three children. He set up a Facebook page and a Twitter account to promote the shooter game cease-fire, which started at at midday Friday (New York-time).

He said video games don't cause violence, as some critics have suggested. He said the cease-fire was meant to show gamers care.
