The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office's spokesperson said one suspect is dead at the scene of the shooting.
It's unclear if there is a second suspect, but deputies are searching the area.
The Jacksonville gaming event is part of the newly launched “Madden NFL 19 Championship Series” from EA Sports, the NFL and ESPN. Players were competing Sunday in a qualifying round to move onto the Round of 16 held in Las Vegas, Nevada, in October.
Malik Brunson was at a nearby Hooters when the shooting occurred at the GLHF Game Bar in Jacksonville, Florida.
"I was in Hooters, all I heard was he got a gun and the shooting started," Brunson told CNN. "One of the men ran into hooters with the shot wounds -- they locked us in the restaurant."
