Garlic Festival parking lots reopening


KRON4 News has learned the parking lot at the Gilroy Garlic Festival grounds is starting to reopen.

KRON4’s Charles Clifford is reporting that vendors can now be escorted into the parking to retrieve their vehicle or possessions.

The FBI says it needs fairgoers’ photos and videos taken during the Gilroy Garlic Festival – both before the shooting and during it – that can help investigators pull together a “bigger picture” of the deadly event.

FBI spokeswoman Katherine Zackel says visitors should upload images and videos to the agency’s website .

Zackel says the FBI has dozens of agents collecting evidence, which is expected to continue for days. More than 20 officials are also connecting victims with services such as counseling.

Zackel says Gilroy police are the lead investigators because officials have not determined gunman Santino William Legan’s motive yet. If it turns out to be an act of terrorism, the FBI will take over.

She says FBI agents were at the festival before the shooting to help local police, a common practice.
