    JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (WPEC) — Police are investigating a mass shooting in Jacksonville, Fla.

    The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office says six adults, five males and one female ranging in age from twenties to seventies, were shot. Three are in critical condition. Police say the suspects shot from the passenger side of silver car.

    The shooting happened around 12:30 p.m., about a half mile north of TIAA Bank Field where the NFL Jacksonville Jaguars are hosting the Houston Texans.

    Police say the shooting is not impacting the Jaguars game. The area around the shooting scene is blocked off. Authorities say game attendees parked near the crime scene will be escorted to their cars.

    No one is in custody. Police believe the suspects traveled in a grey or silver 4-door sedan, possibly a Nissan Altima or Maxima.

    Two months ago a gunman opened fire during a Madden 19 video game tournament in downtown Jacksonville, killing two gamers before turning the gun on himself.
