The Santa Clara County coroner's office said Monday that two of the victims of last week's Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting died of gunshot wounds to their chests and a third died of a back wound.
The office of the medical examiner-coroner said the deaths of Trevor Irby, Keyla Salazar and Stephen Romero are classified as homicides.
The office says 25-year-old Irby and 13-year-old Salazar suffered perforating gunshot wounds to their chests, meaning the bullets completely passed through their bodies. Romero, 6, suffered a perforating gunshot wound to his back.
The coroner's office said last week that 19-year-old gunman Santino William Legan died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, correcting previous police accounts that said he was fatally shot by three officers.
Thirteen other victims were injured in the Northern California shooting on July 28.
