Four people, including the gunman, were killed when a shooter opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Northern California on Sunday.
The shooter, who police say entered by cutting a hole in a perimeter fence to avoid event security, open fire on the crowds, apparently at random.
Gilroy Police Department said they shot him dead. Officers also say that at least 15 people were injured, with some now in a critical condition.
The investigation is continuing throughout the night, and the police has not yet formally identified the victims, though we do have some details.
Here is what we know about the victims of the shooting so far:
Six-year-old Steven Romero was killed.
Alberto Romero, Steven’s father, told NBC Bay Area that his son had been killed at the festival.
"My son had his whole life to live and he was only 6," he said. "That’s all I can say."

Police have not yet identified the gunman, whom one witness described as a tall, thin man wearing camouflage.
Another witness told The Associated Press that he saw a man in a green shirt using what looked like an assault rifle.
And another told Fox News that the shooter was a white male who stayed "very quiet" during the attack.
Two more people were killed.
