Jemele Hill to leave ESPN in September
Many called on ESPN to part ways with Hill, and they'll somewhat get their wish as she plans to leave the company fairly soon. Her departure comes after Pitaro has emphasized ESPN's role as an apolitical chronicler of the sports world.

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, a spokesperson for EA said, "We are aware of an incident at a sanctioned Madden Championship Series competition in Jacksonville".

SWAT is "doing a methodical search inside The Landing" and people hiding in locked areas have been requested to remain where they are until they are found and call 911 to draw the attention of rescuers.

Sujeil Lopez told the New York Times that her 25-year-old son had been shot in the nipple, the hand, and another area of his body.

Police had earlier said there were "multiple fatalities" and that many people had been transported to local hospitals.

Police warned public and media to stay away from Jacksonville Landing, a waterfront entertainment complex in the northeastern Florida city.

Gjoka tweeted that he was hit in the thumb when the tournament "got shot up". "Worst day of my life". "I'm leaving and never coming back".
