Victims recall deadly shooting during California festival

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Two gunshot victims who survived a deadly shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in California say they saw the shooter from an obstacle course and were running away when they were hit.

Brynn Ota-Mathews said Thursday a bullet is lodged in her liver. Her friend Gabriella Gaus said she felt like she was being pinched or burned when she was shot.

Authorities say they are still working to determine the motive of gunman Santino William Legan, who was killed by police about a minute after opening fire at the festival.

Three people, including two children, died and a dozen others were wounded. Several remained hospitalized.

The young women spoke at a news conference at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose before Ota-Mathews is discharged.
