Mass shooting reported in Florida's Jacksonville multiple fatalities at the scene Reports

Federal agents were inside a home in Baltimore Sunday night searching for clues about the man they suspect shot and killed two people and injured nine others in Jacksonville, Florida.

Three people, including the gunman, were killed in a mass shooting at a Madden NFL video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday afternoon.

News4Jax report eyewitnesses seeing police, firefighters, and ambulances at the scene, and roads have been blocked off.

"We are finding many people hiding in locked areas at The Landing", the Sheriff's Office posted.

The Jacksonville event was a regional qualifier leading to an October final in Las Vegas, with a top prize of $25,000.

He tweeted that a bullet had hit his thumb. "He's now cooperating with the authorities and we will be flying him out of Jacksonville as soon as we are given the green light from the officials on the ground", Lake wrote. Players can interact during the game and even see each other on the screen.

Malik Brunson said he was at a nearby Hooters restaurant when the shooting occurred.

A livestream of the tournament caught the moment when Katz started shooting. The LA Times reported he had earlier lost in the tournament which was being live streamed when he opened fire.

But Yedlin's afternoon took a turn for the worse when he inadvertently turned Alonso's shot past Dubravka to hand Chelsea victory. Elsewhere, the defensive unit remains unchanged, with Jorginho and N'Golo Kante starting in midfield .

Jones said he was sitting on a back patio outside the tournament venue when he heard the gunshots.

Madden publisher and the host of the tournament, Electronic Arts, responded to the shooting on Twitter, saying "this is a disgusting situation, and our deepest sympathies go out to all involved". "Traumatized and devastated", he tweeted.

Cloud9, a professional gaming organization based in Los Angeles, California, said it was deeply saddened and shocked by the tragic events: "Our hearts and deepest condolences go out to the victims, families, and all those affected by today's violence", the organization said on Twitter. "We are grateful for the first responders immediately on the scene". T.J. Smith, chief spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department, also said that the agency was assisting law enforcement partners "with some information that has led authorities to Baltimore". As a key figure in the city, Jaguars owner Shad Khan released a statement Sunday evening expressing his condolences.

Meanwhile, Chryl Anderson, volunteer leader with the Florida Chapter Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America's said in a statement: "This awful news is a deadly reminder that we must do more to prevent gun violence in our communities". "The area is not safe at this time".

Jacksonville Sheriff, Mike Williams, confirmed the suspect was in town for the gaming competition.

"I have spoken to FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen regarding the shooting in Jacksonville".

"We've always known he was a little off and stuff just because he wasn't social at all", Kivlen said, adding that Katz's odd behavior extended to his game play.

Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry said the city had "faced an occurrence that is all too common".
