San Jose news, California news.

The youngest victim of a mass shot in a California food festival, was buried Monday.

6-year-old Stephen Romero's family and friends remembered him as a happy and sociable child who loved to dress up as Batman and listen to The Weeknd.

It was the last memorial service for the three people killed on July 28 when an armed man opened fire at the popular Gilroy Garlic Festival. He also killed Keyla Salazar, 13, of San Jose and Trevor Irby, 25, of Romulus, New York. More than a dozen people were injured.

Monterey County supervisor Luis Alejo, who attended the funeral service, said the boy was later buried in a San Jose cemetery.

The boy's mother, who was also injured at the festival, was at the funeral with a cast on her left arm, said Alejo.

A poster with a picture of this birthday party was signed by those present at the funeral.

Stephen was nicknamed "El Romantico" by his uncle because of his good manners, his button-down shirts and his love of the ballads of his favorite singer, The Weeknd.
