Shooting at Garlic Festival a Gun Free Zone, but Many Police Present

The Garlic Festival is south of San Jose and San Francisco, North of Salinas and East of Monterey Bay. The police response was very quick. It appears the killer was shot less than a minute after he started killing.

At least three people were killed and 15 other people injured in a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California, authorities said Sunday night. A suspect was also shot and killed.

"It's sort of a nightmare you hope you never have to live in reality," Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said at a news conference.

Smithee said the suspect appeared to be shooting "somewhat randomly," and that investigators had no information on a possible motive. He said that police believed a second person may have been involved but that they didn't know in what way.
