3 killed, 15 injured at Gilroy Garlic Festival Sunday

At least three people were killed and fifteen injured in a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California Sunday evening.

As NBC News reported, “The festival was near the end of its third and final day when the gunshots were reported at about 5:41 p.m. . . . the gunman appeared to have cut through a fence to get into the event.”

Witness Julissa Contreras said in an interview Sunday night that she saw "your average white guy" firing what appeared to be a semi-automatic rifle, "kind of just going left to right and shooting whoever he could, honestly."

Contreras also said she wasn't particularly shocked by the shooting.

"It's a shame that it's happening, but I think this is just a reflection of the current political climate, wherein people are feeling more comfortable being violent," Contreras said.
