The hateful final Instagram posts of the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooter complained about mixed race people, Silicon Valley and promoted a controversial anarchist book that is beloved by white supremacists moments before the shooting on Sunday.

Santino Legan, 19, has been identified as the gunman who opened fire on crowds at Sunday’s festival, killing three people including a six-year-old boy. He was shot dead at the scene.

Before the shooting, he posted on Instagram on a now-deleted account from the festival.

One said: ‘Ayyy garlic festival time. Come get wasted on overpriced s**t.’ It showed a photograph from the festival.

Another referenced the book Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbeard, aka Arthur Desmond, an alt-right politician whose views are beloved by white supremacists and are widely considered antisemitic. The book is so inflammatory it was banned for years.

‘Read Might Is Right by Ragnar Redbeard. Why overcrowd towns and pave more open space to make room for hordes of mestizos and Silicon Valley white twats?’ one of the posts read.

Mestizos is a racist slur towards mixed race people.

Legan was named on Monday as police in Gilroy, where the shooting happened, continued to hunt for his accomplice.
