Footage on NBC showed people running as shots rang out at the Gilroy Garlic Festival, located 30 miles (48 kilometers) southeast of San Jose.

Earlier reports said at least 11 people were wounded in the shooting.

KPIX reported that Santa Clara County Medical Center said they have admitted two patients hurt in the incident and are expecting two more.

The Gilroy Police Department said on Twitter at 7:22 p.m. that the scene was still active.
