Shooting reported in Gilroy, California: Live updates – CNN
Christopher Ranch, one of the major garlic producers in Gilroy, said the shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival had “shattered” the small city’s beloved annual event.
Gilroy is known for its garlic — the town actually smells of garlic most of the year. The Garlic Festival, a three-day event, celebrates this cornerstone of the community with food, drinks, live entertainment, and cooking competitions, according to its website.
Sunday was supposed to be the festival’s final day. It was held at Christmas Hill Park, about 30 miles away from San Jose.
