JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Florida authorities are reporting a mass shooting at a riverfront mall in Jacksonville.


UPDATE (10 p.m.)

Heavily armed agents have entered a Baltimore townhouse, the home of the father of the suspect in a deadly shooting at a video game tournament in Jacksonville, Florida.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said investigators believe 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore was the shooter in an attack Sunday afternoon that left three people dead, including the suspect with a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Eleven others were reported injured.

An FBI spokesman, Dave Fitz, confirmed agents had gone to the upscale townhouse home. But he did not immediately release any other specifics, citing an ongoing investigation.

The agents could be seen inside the home Sunday evening near Baltimore's Inner Harbor. They wore bulletproof vests and carried long guns. Reporters who gathered outside did not see any authorities carrying any bags of evidence outside.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      

UPDATE (7:30 p.m.)

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said three died, including the gunman in the mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida.

Nine others were shot and wounded and 2 more were hurt fleeing gunfire. 11 people total were injured.

The suspect is believed to be a 24-year-old Baltimore man.

Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said the suspect took his own life.


UPDATE (5:55 p.m.)

Florida Gov. Rick Scott says President Donald Trump has called him, offering any federal help needed in response to a mass shooting during a video game tournament in Jacksonville.

Scott spokesman John Tupps said the governor also spoke Sunday with Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry and Sheriff Mike Williams.

The governor is preparing to fly from his home in Naples to Jacksonville and meet with investigators. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement and Florida Highway Patrol have been directed to help with the investigation.

(12:15pm):

Florida authorities say there are 'multiple fatalities' at the Madden 19 Tournament in Florida. Many were also transported to a local hospital.

A suspect is dead at the scene. Officials are not sure if there is a second suspect.


The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office used Twitter and Facebook to warn people to stay away from the Jacksonville Landing.

The department says to "stay far away from the area. The area is not safe at this time. STAY AWAY."

The sheriff's office didn't provide any other information, but also warned news media to stay away from the area, which contains restaurants and shops along the St. Johns River.
