Just before 7:00 o’clock this evening, authorities arrested the man believed to be behind the Highland Park 4th of July Parade shooting. Robert E. Crimo III was taken into custody during a traffic stop in the Lake Forest area. The gunman opened fire and is responsible for the deaths of six adults at this time. Another 31 parade goers have been hospitalized with injuries.
Police believe the shooter, who was apprehended later Monday, climbed onto a rooftop of a business and opened fire on the parade about 20 minutes after it started.
On July 5, counseling is available at Highland Park High School from 9:00a-2:00p. No appointment is necessary. A valid driver’s license or student ID need to be shown to enter the school.
