6 Killed, Others Injured After 4th of July Parade Shooting in Illinois

Six people are dead and dozens of others were left wounded after a gunman opened fire during a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park Illinois yesterday. The shooter, identified as 22 year old Robert Crimo III used a ‘high-powered rifle’ in an attack that appeared to be ‘random’ and ‘intentional’. Police believe the shooter who was apprehended last night near Lake Forest, Illinois following a manhunt, climbed onto a rooftop of a business and opened fire on the parade 20 minutes after it began. He was taken into custody after a brief car chase.
