Mass Shooting Reported ‘Madden’ Esports Tournament In Jacksonville

There has been a mass shooting at a popular shopping/entertainment area in Jacksonville, Fla., early hours of Sunday afternoon. This has been confirmed by authorities.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office can confirm that the shooting took place at the Jacksonville Landing, a marketplace in the city’s downtown area. In a statement on Twitter, the Sheriff’s Office urged the public to stay away from the area and said it was not safe.

In follow-up tweets, the sheriff’s office continued urging the public to stay away from the area:

“We can’t stress enough to stay away. Many blocks away.”

“Yes, this includes media. It is for safety.”

Shortly after, authorities reported that one suspect was dead at the scene and that they were not yet sure whether there was a second suspect.

In order to conduct a comprehensive search of the area, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office urged every person hiding in locked areas around the Jacksonville Landing to stay in their places and to dial 911 so that officers can come and escort them to safety. They said it was very important that victims and innocent bystanders not start running out of their hiding places at this time.
