    Here we go again California. I hope there are no deaths and the shooter gets dropped.

    According to NBC local medical center has received two victims and expects 3 more. They didn’t say fatalities so hopefully nobody has died or is seriously injured.

    I hope there was plenty of law-enforcement on site patrolling the festival to put an end to the shooting before it got worse.

    So sick of humanity :(

    My friend was at the festival today; thankfully he left about an hour before this happened.

    I thought it was a gun free state. That said, I hope they get the individual, and don't give him any notoriety at all. I have noticed the press doing a better job on that count lately.

    Hopefully, whoever did this is caught and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

    Tragic. Amazing someone would go to a food festival to kill, maim, and destroy the security of a community. My thoughts go out to those affected.

    just to clarify the shooters are to blame.......
    I do wonder if the venue will be sued here.

    New safety guidelines when going out and about in America.

    Avoid the following:

    Large gathering of people
    Medium to large gathering of people with a concentration of political beliefs
    Medium to large gathering of people with a concentration of a religious belief
    Workplaces where somebody was recently fired
    Public spaces where there might be somebody who had a recently failed relationship

    Enjoy your visit.

    Does that mean you would refer to individuals who do horrific things such as this as terrorists?

    I don't care if he or they were whatever race.

    I just wanted it documented for future discussions, that a person doing such horrible things would meet the definition of terrorist according to you.
