    At least 3 dead, 12 injured in shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival in San Francisco Bay Area
    SABBM:

    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.

    Multiple victims reported in Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting

    SABBM:

    Authorities said the scene was still active, with dozens of officers from around the region on the scene. President Trump said on Twitter that “reports are that shooter has not yet been apprehended. Be careful and safe!”

    Witnesses reported hearing multiple rounds fired and that some people were down on the ground. Others said the gunman was armed with a rifle and was dressed in some kind of vest and camouflage fatigues.

    Another witness, Julissa Contreras, told NBC Bay Area that she saw a white man in his early to mid-30s firing a rifle that was “able to shoot three to four shots a second.”

    “It was just rapid firing,” she said. “I could see him shooting in just every direction. He wasn’t aiming at anyone specifically. It was just left to right, right to left…. He definitely was prepared for what he was doing.”

    Gilroy Garlic Festival Shooting: At Least 7 Injured as Police Search for Active Shooter
    SABBM:

    Police and ambulances responded Sunday to an active shooter at the Gilroy Garlic Festival near San Jose, California, according to multiple reports. A city councilman, Dion Bracco, told The New York Times that three people were dead from the shooting and at least 12 more injured. Local hospitals confirmed that they were expecting at least five trauma victims as the grim situation continued to unfold.

    A few hours later, Bracco told The New York Times that one suspect was in custody, but "they don’t know if there were more, so they have to treat it as an active situation."

    It shatters the nerves to think that regular, fun events can turn out like this. Unsettling is an understatement.

    "Gilroy PD is asking for patience until formal statement. We'll want to know the obvious: # of death/injury; # of suspects; where are they searching if no apprehension; type of weapon; shooter known to law enforcement previously?

    Stunning to see the overwhelming police presence there.

    Hopefully, reports that they have a suspect in custody are accurate.

    So sad to hear about such senseless violence and tragic loss of life.
