Many people have been reportedly killed in a mass shooting at a video game tournament in the northern Florida city of Jacksonville.

According to local police, yesterday, one of the suspects was also killed in the process.

“Multiple fatalities at the scene, many transported,” the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office tweeted, adding that it was unclear whether there was a second possible gunman.

“Stay far away from the area. The area is not safe at this time. STAY AWAY.”

The Miami Herald newspaper reported four people were dead and 11 wounded in the shooting at the Madden 19 American football tournament in downtown Jacksonville.

Madden is a hugely popular multi-player video game based on the National Football League.

According to the LA Times, quoting player Steven “Steveyj” Javaruski, the shooter was a gamer who had been competing and lost.

In subsequent tweets, police said they were still searching The Landing entertainment and shopping complex, where the tournament — a regional qualifier for finals in Las Vegas with a $25,000 prize — was being held at the GLHF Game Bar.
