At least 6 killed in shooting at Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois; person of interest in custody


From WWW.CBSNEWS.COM

Six people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, and around two dozen people were taken to area hospitals with injuries, police said. Some of the victims, including at least one child, were in critical condition when they were transported from the scene, Highland Park Fire Chief Joe Schrage told reporters.

Robert “Bobby” Crimo III, who had been identified as a person of interest, was arrested around 6:30 p.m. local time in connection with the shooting, nearly nine hours after the shooting. Officials said his vehicle was spotted and he was s topped after a brief pursuit. He is being taken to the Highland Park Police Department as the investigation continues.

“This individual is believed to have been responsible for what happened,” Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Chris Covelli said Monday night.

Crimo was taken into custody about six miles north of where the shooting took place.

Police and witnesses earlier in the day said it appeared the gunman was shooting at the crowd from the roof of a business near the parade route.
