The first gunshots were heard around 5:40pm local time, immediately causing confusion and panic at Gilroy’s Christmas Hill Park. Videos shared online show people abandoning food stands and fleeing the park in fear, with bangs heard in the background.
Police have confirmed that 3 people have been killed and at least 15 were injured after a gunman opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California. The suspect has been killed, but the scene has been described as “active.” The identity and motive of the shooter has not yet been confirmed, but Gilroy Police Chief Scott Smithee described the shooter as acting “somewhat randomly,” while using “some kind of rifle.”
