BREAKING: Gilroy Shooter Identified as Iranian-American With Islamic Imagery on Instagram

Santino William Legan has been identified as the shooter.

The shooter who killed three people and wounded at least 11 more has been identified as Santino Willian Legan, a described Iranian American.

Legan had an Instagram account on which he shared only three photos. One of the photos depicted Ali Asghar Vahabzadeh, Legan’s maternal grandfather.

An Iranian source told LauraLoomer.us that anybody who idolizes Ali Asghar – Legan’s grandfather’s namesake – would view themselves as a Shia zealot to Islam.

The media is reporting that Legan committed the shooting because he was “angry.” His Instagram was taken down shortly after he was identified.

This story is developing.
