Horror: Gunman Opens Fire At California Garlic Festival Leaving Three Dead And Wounding 15 Others

Panic and horror soon engulfed a local food festival in Northern California as a gunman opened fire killing three people and wounding an additional fifteen others. We do have confirmation that a six-year-old boy is one of the three fatalities. The incident occurred at a Garlic Festival in Gilroy. The gunman is reported dead. The FBI and ATF are on the scene investigating the incident as well (via Fox News):

At least one gunman opened fire Sunday at Northern California’s Gilroy Garlic Festival, killing at least three and injuring 15, before being fatally shot by police stationed nearby who responded in less than a minute after the initial shot was fired, a police official said.

The shooting rampage began at 5:41 p.m. on the north side of the festival, Chief of Police Scot Smithee said at a press conference late Sunday.

One witness told KTVU that he heard what he believed was 30 rounds. Some witnesses said the gunman was in army fatigues.

The San Francisco Field Division of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was responding to the scene, officials said. Smithee said dozens of officers are at the scene investigating.

Todd Jones, a sound engineer, told the newspaper that he was at the front of the festival's Vineyard stage when he heard what sounded like a firework. "But then it started to increase, more rapidly, which sounded more like gunfire, and at that point people realized what was happening," Jones said.

Natalie Martinez, a Gilroy Resident, told the Mercury News that she had gone to get food and separated from her two daughters. "I ran to find the girls . and we basically ran into each other. I thought, We're open prey. It was awful."
