Mass shooting’ at Madden video game tournament in Jacksonville Florida authorities say

A gunman opened fire at a livestream tournament for the game "Madden NFL 19" in Jacksonville, Florida - and audio of the first shots were broadcast live.

Twitch camera captured the shooting.

The local NBC affiliate in Jacksonville is reporting that four people are dead and 11 are injured. They said the area is not safe and have urged people to stay away. Police also took up positions on a bridge overlooking the river.

The shooting took place at the GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville Landing, where gamers were competing in the Madden 19 Tournament.

In the video, players can be seen reacting to the gunfire and cries can be heard before the footage cuts off.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott said he's spoken to the sheriff's office "to offer any state resources he may need".

Newcastle vs Chelsea, Premier League
Yet although Conte led Chelsea to the title in 2017 after switching to five at the back, Sarri will not be following suit. It showed against Arsenal, which poured forward in the first half and created a string of chances.

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".
