At least 5 people shot at Gilroy Garlic Festival

GILROY, Calif. (AP) — At least five people were shot Sunday at an annual food festival in Northern California, a hospital spokeswoman says.

Santa Clara Valley Medical Center spokeswoman Joy Alexiou says the hospital has received two victims from the shooting and expects three more. She had no information on their conditions.

The festival is a nationally known three-day event that attracts thousands of garlic lovers. Sunday was the final day of the festival.

The hearts of Gilroy PD and entire community go out to the victims of today's shooting at the Garlic Festival. The scene is still active. If you are looking for a loved one, please go to the reunification center at Gavilan College at parking lot B. #GilroyActiveshooter
