JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Three people are dead and 11 injured after a shooting at a California food festival Sunday evening.

According to CNN, the dead in Gilroy include a six-year-old boy and one of the shooters. It is not completely clear how a second person was involved, but a manhunt is underway for the suspect that witnesses described.

Heavy police presence on the ground reportedly helped prevent greater bloodshed.

President Donald Trump encouraged locals to “be careful and safe.” Some 2020 candidates weighed in, with former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) issuing a call to action — “we can accept this as our fate or we can change it” — and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) saying that she was “grateful to first responders.”
