According to a report from the Chicago Sun-Times, shots were fired and multiple bystanders were hit at a July 4th parade in upscale Highland Park, Illinois.

The report states that all activities for the holiday in the area have been curtailed for the day.

City officials say six people were killed and at least 24 people were hospitalized.

The shooter was described as a white man about 18 to 20 years old with longer dark hair, and he remained at large three hours later.

Sympathy for the victims and families. When we can't even celebrate a holiday with family and friends without worrying about something like this happening, We have problems.

Our country is failing. Our government regularly prefers violence as a means to address disagreements and issues. Why would anyone be surprised when people learn from that example and turn to violence.

Here’s what is known about the person of interest.
The Highland Park mass shooting suspect was identified by police as Robert Eugene Crimo III, age 21, but will be 22, Sept. 20.

“We are assisting Highland Park Police with a shooting in the area of the Independence Day parade route. STAY OUT OF THE AREA – allow law enforcement and first responders to do their work,” the Lake County Sheriff tweeted.

According to police he goes by the name "Bobby," and internet searches show that he also went by the name "Awake The Rapper," with his first album release in 2016. Before it was taken down, a music video he had pinned on Twitter showed a cartoon of a school shooting as well as videos of himself in a school.

He had a YouTube account, Instagram and Twitter, but the Instagram account was taken down moments after police released his name.

He frequently uses a symbol on his site and social media that is similar to a Celtic shield knot for protection, but it is slightly different.

UPDATED with arrest, 4:55 PM: Police have arrested a person of interest in the horrific Fourth shooting at a Fourth of July Parade near Chicago. Highland Park Police Chief Lou Jogmen said in a news conference that officers initiated a traffic stop of the subject and “that subject did flee. A brief pursuit went on. Ultimately they were able to get the subject stopped … in Lake Forest. The subject was taken into custody without incident.”
The idiot barely left the neighborhood.

I have a feeling he's going to be another Parkland/Newtown shooter. Our next door neighbor has a 21 year old daughter whose friend went to HS with Crimo. He'll turn out to be another loner, an "incel" with a rage on and semi-auto rifle--and being over 21he could buy it.

Another tragedy, we don't know the motive but probably a disturbed young man with a rifle. On Sunday a man killed three in Copenhagen, Denmark's largest shopping mall, motive unknown but he had a history of psychiatric problems. And on June 25th an Islamic terrorist (Iranian) killed two at a gay bar in Oslo, Norway the night before gay pride events which were then canceled. A lot of tragic deaths and the simplistic response by anti-gunners will be to blame guns.

One of the main reasons I don't do social media, it's full of people with stupid simplistic opinions on complicated issues. Academic credentials only hide so much.

How about we just have a lot of bad seeds or "Damiens" amongst us. Easily manipulated by our current lack of law enforcement (unless ur POC), lack of lawless punishment for the elite, leaders that are crooks and checked out parents that haven't a clue what their little darlings are up to. Movies/TV/VGames have always been violent - anyone believing they are real has a bit of mental sickness. While media entertainment may influence, the root problem is the individual.

He was 'known' to local law enforcement. His social media presence showed he glorified mass shootings...school ones particularly YET..he 'legally' bought his rifle.
As did the Uvalde shooter, as did the Boulder grocery store shooter, as did the Denver tattoo parlor shooter, as did.......................
From 1966 to 2019, 77 percent of mass shooters obtained the weapons they used in their crimes through legal purchases, according to a comprehensive survey of law enforcement data, academic papers and news accounts compiled by the National Institute of Justice, the research wing of the Justice Department.

In upstate New York a few months ago, the 18-year-old suspect in the Buffalo shooting walked into Vintage Firearms in sleepy Endicott, passed an instant background check without a glitch and bought a used Bushmaster XM-15 semiautomatic rifle, a copy of the ubiquitous AR-15 used in many other mass shootings.

FOID card sponsored by Dad. Completely fell thru the 'crack'. Used mom's $ to buy 3 rifles and a shotgun. Another example of how superfluous the BGC 'system' is.
NOW all agencies involved back stroking on the BGC system, and how it failed, again.
