New Info Turns Gilroy Shooting Into Terrorism Probe

The Los Angeles Times reports:

Federal authorities have launched a domestic terrorism investigation into the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting that left three dead after officials discovered the gunman had a list of other potential targets, authorities said at a news conference Tuesday.

John F. Bennett, FBI special agent in charge, said the target list included religious institutions, courthouses and political institutions involving both the Republican and Democratic parties. He declined to provide specifics on the targets but said law enforcement officials were reaching out to notify them.

Santino William Legan, 19, opened fire on the evening of July 28, killing three people and wounding 13 more. Shortly after the shooting, police said the rampage was cut short when three Gilroy police officers engaged and killed him in less than a minute. But the county medical examiner concluded Friday that Legan killed himself, contradicting that earlier police account.
