Tom Colicchio is thinking of the Gilroy, California community following a shooting at the Gilroy Garlic Festival on Sunday, July 28.

The head judge of Bravo's Top Chef hosted a cook-off and performed a cooking demonstration at the Northern California event the day before the shooting on Saturday, July 27. "I was in Gilroy at the Garlic Festival yesterday. Really great community," Tom tweeted on Sunday night following the news of the shooting. "Prayers go out to all."

The Real Housewives of New Jersey's Teresa Giudice also sent her thoughts and prayers to the Gilroy community after appearing at the Gilroy Garlic Festival on Saturday. "I'm truly heartbroken hearing the events that have taken place at the Gilroy Garlic Festival in Gilroy, CA. I was at the festival yesterday with wonderful staff, volunteers and many many families & I'm flooded with thoughts of them now as they navigate this tragic situation," Teresa shared on Instagram on Sunday night. "Prayers and love to the community of Gilroy tonight."

At least three people were killed and at least 12 others were injured after a suspect opened fire at the Gilroy Garlic Festival on Sunday, NBC News reports. The suspect was shot and killed by police. However, the crime scene is still active, and authorities are investigating the possibility of a second suspect, according to CNN.
