California’s Gilroy terrorist identified as 19-year-old Iranian who hates whites and Hispanics
BREAKING: The terrorist who murdered three people at California’s Gilroy Garlic Festival has been identified as 19-year-old Santino William Legan, an Italian-Iranian according to his Instagram, as police continue to hunt for a possible accomplice.
An Instagram account that was registered under his name had been deleted by the time he was named on Monday.
Screenshots from his Instagram saw him post about a notorious book called Might Is Right, written by Ragnar Redbeard and published in 1890. The manifesto has since been adopted by misogynists and white supremacists. It claims that a woman and family are the property of a man, and also proclaims the innate superiority of the Anglo-Saxon race.
‘Read Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbard. Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos and Silicon Valley white twats?’, he wrote minutes before the mass murder.
He also appears to have taken a photo at the festival before he began shooting, and captioned it ‘Ayyy garlic festival time Come get wasted on overpriced shit.’
Three people were killed and 15 others wounded after at least one terrorist opened fire Sunday evening during the Gilroy Garlic Festival. The terrorist was shot and eliminated in the shooting attack that sent hundreds of panicked people scrambling for their lives.
Witnesses described seeing a shooter dressed in camouflage gear and spraying bullets from a semi-automatic rifle.
The deceased victims included 6-year-old Stephen Luciano Romero of San Jose, authorities said. The conditions of the wounded ranged from critical to moderate.
Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee told reporters in a late-night briefing that Gilroy officers engaged a suspect within a minute of shots ringing out and eliminated him.
Survivors said the terrorist told them he was ‘really angry’ when they asked him why he wanted to kill them.
Authorities believe he gained access to the festival, which was protected with metal detectors, by using bolt cutters to get through a fence.
They believe he had an accomplice and police are still looking for that person.
