At least 3 dead, 12 injured in shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival in San Francisco Bay Area
A report of a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival caused mass chaos among festival attendees Sunday evening, according to CBS San Francisco. The station reported that at least 3 people are dead and 12 others are injured.
A witness described hearing what sounded like "a semi-automatic going off really close" when the Sunday shooting unfolded.
Another witness mistook the gunfire for a music act. "I thought it was, like, an opening act for the concert," he said.
Ain't that the truth.
As I'm looking at the videos of people leaving the festival, it reminds me that when going to events like this, always know where the exits are. In an emergency, your thoughts can get muddled, so best to mentally note the exit.
Awaiting news the shooter is caught.
