JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) - n FBI official in Baltimore has confirmed that agents are searching the family home of the man authorities believe was behind a deadly shooting attack at a video game tournament at a Florida mall.
    
An FBI spokesman, Dave Fitz, says agents have gone to the suspect's father's house in Baltimore, hours after Sunday's mass shooting in Jacksonville, Florida. He did not immediately release any other specifics, citing an ongoing investigation.
    
Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said earlier Sunday that investigators believe 24-year-old David Katz of Baltimore was the shooter. The sheriff says three people were killed Sunday, including the suspect, who died from a self-inflicted gunshot.
    
T.J. Smith is the chief spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department. He says he could only confirm that the mid-Atlantic city's force was assisting law enforcement partners "with some information that has led authorities to Baltimore."
