Ron Lendvay, director of investigations for the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office gave no indication of any link to the game, which started at 1 p.m. and wasn't affected.

Six people were shot and injured during a shooting in Jacksonville, Florida, on Sunday. The sheriff's office tweeted that three of the wounded were rushed in critical condition for care.

No suspects have been taken into custody.

He said authorities have been unable to immediately determine whether there was any relationship among the wounded.

The vehicle then fled westbound on Pippin Street.

Police believe the shooter emerged from the passenger side of a grey sedan, and that there may have been more than one person in the vehicle. The Sheriffs Office released a photo of the vehicle in the intersection and asked anyone with information to contact the agency.

A portion of A Philip Randolph Boulevard will remain closed, according to the Sheriffs Office.

The shooting happened about a mile away from TIAA Bank Field, where the Jacksonville Jaguars were playing the Houston Texans at the time of the shooting.

Local media reports cited authorities as saying the shooting had had no impact on game day activities in and around the stadium. Lendvay says any fans parked near the sooting scene would be able to retrieve their cars afterward.
