3 killed in deadly mass shooting in Florida

A mass shooting at a video game tournament has led to "multiple fatalities" in the US state of Florida, according to police. The shooting took place on Sunday at a waterfront dining, entertainment and shopping site in downtown Jacksonville, according to local media. Citing police sources, reports said 3 people were killed and at least 11 wounded. "We have deceased victims at the scene. We also have injured people at the hospital. We will release counts later on," said Sheriff Mike Williams at a brief press conference, describing the dead suspect as a white male who had yet to be identified. "We have no outstanding suspects at this time, the scene is secure, and we will follow up in a couple of hours." The attack took place during the Madden 19 online game tournament at the GLHF Game Bar, according to the venue's website. The video game tournament was being streamed online from the restaurant. Players can be seen reacting to the gunfire and cries can be heard before the footage cuts off. "SWAT is doing a methodical search inside... We will get to you. Please don't come running out," the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office earlier said on Twitter.
