Police identify alleged Gilroy Garlic Festival gunman

Police on Monday identified the man they said killed three people at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California as Santino William Legan.

According to reports, he allegedly posted racist comments and recommended a white supremacist book shortly before the shooting.

Investigators said Legan opened fire on the crowd Sunday with a legally purchased assault-style rifle, killing a 6-year-old boy, a 13-year-old girl, and a man in his 20s.

Legan was killed by police.

The shooting occurred at an annual food festival held to raise money for the city of Gilroy, about 80 miles southeast of San Francisco.

Police were still searching Monday for a possible motive for the murders, and for a possible second suspect.
