[BREAKING] Authorities Identify Person of Interest in July 4th Highland Park Parade Mass Shooting

[UPDATE: Crimo is now in police custody]

Police in Highland Park, Illinois, have identified a person of interest in a July 4th parade shooting that has left six people dead and at least 24 people injured and rushed to nearby hospitals.

Police said 22-year-old Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III is from the area. They identified him as “armed and dangerous” and advised anyone who might have any information to contact them immediately.

Highland Park is known as a heavily Jewish suburb more than 25 miles outside of Chicago, comprising about a third of the town’s population. The city issued a statement condemning antisemitism in April, when Antisemitic flyers appeared in the area and surrounding communities on Yom HaShoah, the Day of Holocaust Remembrance.

Police have not addressed or confirmed a possible motive in the deadly shooting and Crimo, the person of interest, was still at large at press time. Twitter users had found his YouTube and other social media posts, which we will not share or link to.
