Multiple people are feared dead after a reported shooting at a 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday.

Witnesses say crowds fled the sound of gunfire, and others saw at least five bloodied people lying on the ground and another under a blanket, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office, where Highland Park is located, confirmed that a shooting had occurred and urged people to stay out of the area. The sheriff’s office did not confirm the number of victims, however.


One witness reportedly said a shooter was on a roof of a store when the shooting occurred, but this has not yet been confirmed.  The gunman is reportedly still at large.

Twitter user @Ri_Kayyy shared a video and wrote, “Active shooter in Highland Park, IL. Avoid Central Ave. My nephew recorded this video.”

Twitter user John Harty shared a video of the moment gunshots are heard:

Lynn Sweet of the Chicago Sun-Times was filming the parade the moment the shooting broke out, and shared a video on Twitter of terrified people running for their lives.

Sweet shared another photo showing a pool of blood on the ground and tweeted, “Bloodbath at #Highland Park July 4th parade.. I was there.”

Rep. Brad Schneider (D-Ill.) tweeted, “Today a shooter struck in Highland Park during the Independence Day parade. My campaign team and I were gathering at the start of the parade when the shooting started. My team and I are safe and secure. We are monitoring the situation closely and in touch with the Mayor.”

“Hearing of loss of life and others injured. My condolences to the family and loved ones; my prayers for the injured and for my community; and my commitment to do everything I can to make our children, our towns, our nation safer. Enough is enough!”

Aditya Raj Kaul, executive editor at TV9 Network, tweeted, “Mass shooting reported at the 4th July Parade at Highland Park, Illinois, United States. Over 25 rounds fired at the parade. Suspect believed to be a male with large yellow backpack.”

Someone shared a photo of lost child that was found after the shooting.  Another Twitter user added that the parent was reportedly found.

Empty lawn chairs are now left abandoned on the curb:

Monday morning, just prior to the parade starting, the Lake County Sheriff’s Department had tweeted, “On behalf of Sheriff John D. Idleburg and the men & women of the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, we wish you a very safe and happy Independence Day, Lake County!!”

    • Could be any race really, because this was not about race. It was about hating America and the Dems and the Leftist MSM have been working on filling minds with America-hating attitudes, full tilt since Trump took office. I’ve seen tons of white America haters. And the reports indicate the shooter WAS white, but he won’t be a Republican, a conservative, a MAGA supporter, an NRA member, or even a ‘white supremacist’. He will prove to be a Leftist.

    • He was apparently white – not a conservative or Republican or MAGA supporter or ‘supremacist’ though, rather someone groomed by the Left to hate America. Just the other day the Dems were telling people to not celebrate the 4th.

  1. Why???? Why can’t we have laws making it illegal to shoot people at parades? That’s right, liberal cities have no #commonsense when it comes to actually enforcing criminal behavior.

    Prayers to all involved. It’s time to stand up America. The liberal world order isn’t working and isn’t going to get better.

      • Per Wikipedia, Highland Park IL is considered to be a Democrat stronghold.
        Democrat mayor, Democrat State Reps, and the city council members you can’t find their party very easily which tells me they are downplaying that they are Dem or “independent”.

        • 60.8% of the registered voters in Highland Park are registered Democrats.
          So much for ‘not always blue’. And the North Pole is ‘not always cold’.

  2. So much for having an Independence Day Parade….We are no longer safe or free in America 🇺🇸. Prayers for Jesus to return 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

  3. I hope they catch the perp! Can almost 100% guarantee you that it is not a true, red-blooded, American-loving, U.S. Citizen! We probably will never know.

  4. This is the outcome of gun free zones, in a suburb of Chicago. It’s a disaster, as the Demoncratic mayor snoozes on crime.

  5. Highland Park is where my kids were born and not far from where they grew up (north suburbs). These are considered safe neighborhoods. I was watching a parade in the western suburbs, where I now live when I heard the news. So sad. These parades are a huge source of community pride, with kids marching for their sports club, school groups, dance club, etc. People work hard on the floats for their church or community groups. Because of the shooting parades were cancelled in all the nearby and even further out towns. Such a shame for one sick person to ruin everyone’s day. The parade I was at was well under way and finished without incident. I pray for all those injured and the kids who don’t understand this stuff and are affected.

  6. Lightfoot’s shit hole. Democrats scumbags. Get them out. Clean up the city. Drugs ,rape and murder are their daily outcome for the people of Chicago. Sad.

    • Highland Park isn’t Chicago, but it is a Democrat stronghold, 61% of registered voters are Dem along with the Mayor and from what I can tell at least the majority on the city council. (They keep that info hidden.)

  7. Highland Park is where my kids were born and not far from where they grew up. It’s the far northern suburbs. I was at a parade in the western suburbs when I heard the news of this shooting. These parades are a huge source of pride for the communities. Kids march in the parades for their sports clubs, dance clubs, school bands, church groups, etc. All the parades in nearby town have now been cancelled as well as all the activities for the day. So sad. One sick person ruins the day and affects all the kids who wanted to feel safe and have fun with their community. The parade I was at was well under way and finished without incident. Scary.

  8. What is up with always using the words mass shooting?! Why sensationalized why not just report shooting with multiple victims.

  9. Time to bring back brutal torture as a means of punishment.
    Putting them in prison with a TV and gym doesn’t seem to be working.

  10. The Left does not care about the violence.
    They relish the chance to bolster their goal to take away guns (from the law abiding citizens, who are the only ones they really fear).

  11. I blame this on the left shit stirrers! Left Liberal Woke America B.S! We need law & order. Chicago has the toughest gun laws. So it goes to show you nobody is safe anyplace anymore. It will be worse as soon as all different countries settle in America from the open border policies. We need eyes in back of our head & a whole new administration; Worthless; his agenda is not
    for America. It’s to protect his assets within Ukraine & give our money to outsiders. With 24 people injured & 6 dead, there must have been more than 1 shooter with a shotgun.

  12. In Chicago isn’t it supposed to be the Pinnacle of gun control ran by Democratic Mayors and Democratic everywhere. Even though they have the toughest gun control in the country things like this happen more in that town in that City than any other place on the planet.

  13. All the police in Chicago should just up and quit. They are shown No Respect and aren’t allowed to really do their jobs. Let that Lori person handle all the crime, she has 75 police protecting her.

  14. Sad day when people are gunned down at a parade where there are children. This is what happens when you constantly spew hate. This administration has done nothing but spew hate towards Americans and this country. Our prayers go out to all involved. Lord help us all.
