A gunman opened fire at a livestream tournament for the game “Madden NFL 19” in Jacksonville, Florida — and audio of the first shots were broadcast live.

The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office confirmed there was an active mass shooting Sunday at Jacksonville Landing — an outdoor shopping area in downtown — and warned people to stay away. The tournament was being streamed live on Twitch … the opening rounds were captured as well.

WARNING … the audio here is incredibly graphic, as you can hear people screaming in a panic.

Some local outlets are reporting that multiple victims have been shot and at least 4 people were killed — although police have not confirmed the exact number of deaths. They have, however, confirmed that there are multiple fatalities … and multiple others have been transported to a hospital.

The JSO just tweeted that one suspect is dead at the scene, but it is unknown if there’s a second suspect. They say a thorough search is being conducted now, and SWAT is finding many people hiding out in locked areas throughout Jacksonville Landing. JSO is urging people to stay put and call 911 so police can come and rescue them.

Pro gamer Drini Gjoka of compLexity Gaming — a professional gaming team at the event — was grazed in the hand by a bullet during the shooting. His rep tells us … “Our player, Drini, was hit in the thumb but is going to be fine. He managed to escape and run down the street to a nearby gym. He’s currently cooperating with the authorities and we will be flying him out of Jacksonville as soon as we are given the green light from the officials on the ground.”
