Three people died in the shooting. The shooter was also killed, Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said during a press conference. At least (16) other people were injured.
The shooter entered the festival grounds from the creek and cut through the gate with tools. Police were on the north side of the festival where shots rang out and “engaged” the shooter in less than one minutes. The shooter died.
Police believe a second shooter was involved. It is unclear what that person’s involvement was. Police are still hunting for the second suspect.
