Aug. 6 (UPI) -- A Northern California medical examiner has issued the causes of death for the two children and a man shot dead at a summer festival last week.
The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner-Coroner's office said Monday 6-year-old Stephen Romero died of a gunshot wound to the back, while 13-year-old Keyla Salazar and 25-year-old Trevor Irby were shot in the chest. The coroner said both Salazar and Irby had bullets pass completely through their bodies, and Romero's was a perforating wound.
All three died after the July 28 attack at a garlic festival in Gilroy, located about 30 miles southeast of San Jose. Their deaths have officially been listed as homicides, the coroner said.
The coroner said gunman Santino William Legan, 19, shot himself. Earlier reports said he was killed by police.
Salazar's family said a funeral mass is set for Tuesday in San Jose.
"Her tender smile and charismatic personality conquered everyone's heart," it said. "Her intelligence, her strength, her tenacity motivated everyone to move forward. She was a happy and resilient girl. She loved helping others and always showed generosity for others, forgetting herself many times."
Police are still trying to determine a motive for the attack, examining his activities online. A social media post has linked Legan to a 19th century white supremacist manifesto.
"We're looking at multiple threads of conversations that he's had," said FBI special agent in charge John Bennett. "However, we're still not comfortable in saying it's an ideology one way or another."
