Three dead, suspect killed in shooting at Gilroy Garlic Festival in California

At least three people were killed and 15 other people injured in a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California, authorities said Sunday night. A suspect was also shot and killed.

"It's sort of a nightmare you hope you never have to live in reality," Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said at a news conference.

Smithee said the suspect appeared to be shooting "somewhat randomly," and that investigators had no information on a possible motive. He said that police believed a second person may have been involved but that they didn't know in what way.

One of those killed was 6-year-old Steven Romerowho was at the festival with this mother and grandmother, who were also injured in the shooting.
