We are so deeply saddened as we follow the news regarding the shooting at a restaurant in downtown Jacksonville.
Reports are still unfolding, but so far we know that 4 people have died, including the shooter (a white male) who died of self inflicted wounds.
The shooting took place during a Madden video game competition. Some witnesses say that the shooting began after an argument broke out during the games.
The investigation is on going – we will update this page as we find out more information.

I’ve spoken to @JSOPIO Mike Williams to offer any state resources he may need. FDLE is currently responding, and I have spoken to FDLE Commissioner Rick Swearingen regarding the shooting in Jacksonville. We will continue to receive updates from law enforcement.
