Police have identified the shooter in the Gilroy, CA Garlic Festival shooting as Santino William Legan. News reports state that Legan was an Iranian-American and shouted he was 'very angry' as he mowed down civilians with a long rifle at close range yesterday.
Legan had an Instagram account on which he shared only three photos. One of the photos depicted Ali Asghar Vahabzadeh, Legan’s maternal grandfather, reported LauraLoomer.us.
