The teenager who opened fire with an assault rifle at a weekend food festival in Northern California, killing three people, died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, autopsy results announced on Friday found.

Police had originally asserted that the gunman, Santino William Legan, 19, was shot dead by police officers who were on patrol at Sunday’s Gilroy Garlic Festival and confronted Legan when he began his rampage.

Gilroy Police Chief Scot Smithee insisted the three officers who exchanged fire with Legan were still heroes, saying the casualty toll would likely have been higher had they not engaged the gunman as quickly as they did, within seconds after he began shooting.

The article goes on to state the following:

Speaking to reporters on Friday, Smithee said the suspect turned his gunfire from the crowd to the officers as they reached him, and he was struck by ‘several’ shots returned by the police, none of whom was wounded in the exchange.

The gunman initially fell to his knees, then to the ground. But he managed at some point to squeeze off a final round from his gun into his own head, Smithee said.

The autopsy showed specifically that Legan died from a self-inflicted gunshot fired into his mouth, said Cindy Gallego, a spokeswoman for the Santa Clara County coroner’s office.

    Well – it’s going to be a bad week for Dems / Deep State so they had to create a diversion. They absolutely are behind this and will murder innocent people to make sure we’re focused elsewhere. What they don’t seem to understand is that WE KNOW! We are AWAKENED to their corruption and tactics!

    Dear Media:

    PLEASE stop using his name and showing his picture. ONLY refer to him as “the cowardly POS that murdered innocent people.”

    If you need to print names, make it the names of the innocent victims. Make THEM famous.

    STOP making these cowardly POS bastards famous!

    Something is fishy about this revised report regarding the shooter.
