Mass Shooting at 'Madden NFL 19' Tournament in Florida

Mass shooting reported at Jacksonville mall

People were in the Jacksonville Landing area prior to the shooting, and police said they understood many were hiding in locked areas after the shooting was reported.

Scott's office said the governor would be traveling to Jacksonville Sunday evening to be briefed by local authorities. FBI spokesman Dave Fitz says agents have gone to the suspect's father's house in Baltimore, but he did not immediately release any other specifics, citing an ongoing investigation.

Nine other people suffered gunshot wounds and two people were injured fleeing the area, Williams said.

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

"Multiple fatalities at the scene, many transported", it said in another tweet.

The sheriff's office used Twitter and Facebook to warn people to stay far away and to ask anyone who was hiding to call 911. "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", Jason Lake, CompLexity Gaming founder and CEO, said in a statement. SWAT is doing a methodical search inside The Landing.

Ryan Alemon, who came from Texas to participate in the gaming tournament, said he ducked down and ran toward the restroom when he heard the gunshots.

Sounds of the shooting were captured as the gaming tournament was being livestreamed.

The latest rampage occurred amid a debate over USA gun laws that was given fresh impetus by the massacre in February of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Florida. Bill Nelson, D-Fla., issued a statement after Sunday's shooting: "Word of another tragic mass shooting in our state brings shock and outrage".

"Everyone was running, they were dropping because they were getting shot", Alemon told CNN. The shots continue, screams are heard, and a man's voice is heard saying, "Oh, my God!" over and over.

"Worst day of my life", he wrote about 20 minutes later. "I feel no pulse, so I took my shirt off, my brand new white T-shirt, and I applied pressure to the wound - feel it again and there was a pulse". "Life can be cut short in a second". The Jacksonville Landing, which is located along the St. Johns River, is home to restaurants, stores, and live entertainment.
