Top figures from the professional USA online gaming community expressed shock and dismay on Sunday after a shooting at a tournament in Florida left three people dead.

Nine other people were wounded by gunfire and all were in stable condition Sunday evening after being taken to hospitals, Williams said. "Then we heard repeat shots and we took off running", said Williams, who participated in the tournament earlier.

The agency announced on Twitter that people should stay away from the area.

He said Katz was in Jacksonville for the "Madden NFL 19" video game tournament, at Jacksonville Landing, in the heart of the city's downtown.

In live footage of the tournament, players can be seen reacting to the gunfire and heard crying out before the footage cuts off. The Landing is an open-air marketplace with stores, bars and restaurants in downtown Jacksonville along the St. Johns River.

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

The Hammers grew into the contest and attacked a nervy Arsenal defence at any given opportunity. But also, the win gives the confidence for the players.

The victims have not yet been officially named, but another professional Madden player, @ThePrxdigyy, tweeted photos of two gamers who were reported on social media to have been killed. The gunman killed two or three people "that I saw", Javaruski said.

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

Police warned that the shooter was still active around 2:15 p.m.

While police have not identified the victims, family members told Jacksonville CBS television station WJAX that the two people killed were Eli Clayton and Taylor Robertson, both were video game contestants. "I think the eSports industry as a whole is going to have to step back and take a look at further strengthening our security".

EA Sports Madden NFL released a preliminary statement via Twitter.

Florida Governor Rick Scott said he had offered state support in the aftermath, and that President Donald Trump had offered "any federal resources needed".
