Police are still arriving to the scene of what appears to be a mass shooting that could still be in progress. Reports range from 5 to 11 victims, but we won’t know anything for sure until tomorrow.
The incident unfolded during the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival, which according their website sees 100,000 visitors during the 3-day event.
