A shooting at a video game tournament Sunday afternoon in
Jacksonville, Florida has reportedly left at least four people

Jacksonville news outlet WJXT reported at least 11 were
shot at the livestream tournament of the new game Madden NFL
19, hosted at the GLHF Game Bar at Jacksonville
Landing, an outdoor mall.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office
tweeted
to confirm the shooting, writing “Mass shooting at
the Jacksonville Landing. Stay far away from the area. The area
is not safe at this time. STAY AWAY #TheLandingMassShooting.”

“We can’t stress enough to stay away. Many blocks away,” the
account later tweeted.

The office also tweeted there were “multiple fatalities at the
scene, many transported,” before confirming “one suspect is dead
at the scene, unknown at this time if we have a second suspect.
Searches are being conducted.”

SWAT is searching the scene for survivors and any other possible
suspects. Authorities encouraged anyone trapped inside to call
