Shooter Kills 3 People Before Being Shot to Death By Police at Gilroy Garlic Festival in California

Santino William Legan,19, shot and killed three people on Sunday at the Garlic Festival in Gilroy, California. The motive is unknown. Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said police are still following leads about a potential second suspect being involved. Legan reportedly bought the AK-47-type rifle in Nevada and violated California’s strict gun-free zone laws by bringing it with him to the food festival.

The gunman who opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California used an AK-47-style assault rifle he had purchased legally earlier this month, police said Monday.

Santino William Legan, a 19-year-old Gilroy resident, shot and killed two children, a 6-year-old boy, and a 13-year-old girl, as well as a man in his 20s in the mass shooting on Sunday, Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee said. Fifteen other people were wounded.

“Anytime a life is lost it’s a tragedy, but when its young people it’s even worse,” he said.

Smithee said three officers engaged Legan and, despite being outgunned, they fatally wounded him “in less than a minute.”

Smithee said that Legan had purchased the assault rifle in Nevada on July 9. Smithee said he believes Legan was living in Nevada with family members at the time he bought the gun. However, police do not know how long he lived there, or when since he returned to Gilroy.

He added that police have not yet determined Legan’s motive, “it seems like this is a random act,” he told reporters.

Smithee said police are still following leads about a potential second suspect being involved.

Over a dozen people were injured in the Sunday afternoon shooting at the world-famous Gilroy Garlic Festival.

Police say that Legan is believed to have cut through a fence to get into the heavily guarded festival before randomly opening fire on attendees.

The “white supremacist” book he was supposed to have been “inspired” by was written in 1890, something that the jews media failed to mention. If it was possible for elements of the US Sayanim and the Mossad to stage 9/11, and the assassination of Kennedy has gone unredressed for all these years, among other things too numerous to mention, then may I please be allowed a modicum of SUSPICION about this continuing rash of public shootings by “white supremacists” ? It would take a real dummy to not realize that the people who want to destroy the white middle class… Read more »
