Los Angeles (Agencies): At least three people lost their lives and at least 15 others were injured in a shooting at a major food festival in California on Sunday, police said.
Officers confronted and shot dead the suspect “in less than a minute,” said Scot Smithee, police chief of the city of Gilroy, 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Jose.
Police said it was “still an active crime scene” at the site of the three-day Gilroy Garlic Festival, one of the largest food festivals in the country.
A search for a possible second suspect was ongoing, Smithee said.
“We believe based on witness statements that there was a second individual involved in some way, we just don’t know in what way,” he told journalists.
