One of the suspects was shot and killed, and a second suspect was still on the loose late Sunday, sources told NBC Bay Area.
Hippie Dave tweeted a video showing the chaos that erupted at the Garlic Festival after hearing gunshots. The video shows people running away from the active shooter:
Running away from my life from the Gilroy garlic festival, mind the language because I was in shock! I am so thankful that I’m alive, I saw gunfire smoke and even got struck in the forehead by a ricochet from shrapnel. I was near where the gunman was firing!
