The 2019 Gilroy Garlic Festival was scheduled to run from Friday, July 26 to Sunday, July 28. It was advertised as the world's greatest summer food festival unfortunately on the last day of the festival chaos broke out.

Reports state that a gunman opened fire on festival go-ers at the 2019 Gilroy Garlic Festival in California on Sunday. The shooting left four people, including a suspect, dead and 15 people injured.

Police was called to the scene at 5:41 p.m. local time. Multiple ambulance units also responded to the call.

Officers engaged with the suspected shooter as soon as they arrived on the scene. The suspect was shot and killed in the shootout that followed.

A law enforcement official revealed that police believe they have positively identified the slain shooter. However, they are still investigating the shooter's motive for the attack as well as if the shooter had any accomplices.

A Santa Clara Valley Medical Center spokesperson told reporters that those rushed to the facility for treatment ranged from minor to seriously injured.

Gabriel Palacios, from Mexico, was visiting the festival with his 12-year-old cousin and about thirty other family members. He revealed that his cousin was shot.

He said that he and his cousins ran after hearing the shots. However, when he turned to look back he realized one of the young girls had been shot in the leg.

"She was hurting a lot," added Palacios.

Steve Janisch was a pyro chef at the festival. He revealed that while he was cleaning up and preparing to leave, he heard gun shots.

"I heard the shots, and got as many [of] as my guys, and got behind shelter in the alley," Janisch said. "I saw many people running in fear. Once we rounded everybody up out in the parking lot, we headed out per the direction of the authorities. I drove a mother and her two daughters safely to their car."
