Six people are dead and dozens injured in a mass shooting at a 4th of July parade in the wealthy Chicago suburb of Highland Park on Monday, authorities said.

Police said they are still searching for the gunman and described the ordeal as an “active shooter incident.”

The article goes on to state the following:

The shooter appeared to open fire from the roof of a building overlooking the parade route shortly after 10 a.m., multiple witnesses said.


During a press briefing Monday afternoon, Highland Park Police described the gunman as a white 18-20 years old male with longer black hair, a small build, and wearing a white or blue t-shirt.

Police said a firearm, a rifle, was recovered from the scene, and a manhunt is underway for the shooter.

Police confirmed during the press briefing that 6 people are now dead from the shooting, and another 24 have been transported to the hospital.  Later in the press briefing, one official said the 24 are in critical condition.

The shooting began at 10:14 am, just a few minutes after the Independence Day parade started.

Fox News reporter Mike Tobin tweeted after the press briefing, “Highland Park Police Cmdr has confirmed 6 dead 24 injured. Rifle was recovered. Gunman fired from a rooftop. No indications he is barricaded anywhere. Still on the loose. Still considered armed and dangerous. People are warned to remain indoors.”

According to WGN TV, one witness said he saw the shooter, and said “he was very military style, methodical in the way he was crouched and shooting.”

Others reported hearing 20 to 30 gunshots, and said the shooter was on a roof overlooking the parade.

One doctor reportedly said after the shooting, “I did CPR on a 9-year-old until the paramedics pushed me off. This was a mass casualty zone. I saw two people eviscerated by the AR-15.”

Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker tweeted, “My staff and I are closely monitoring the situation in Highland Park. State police are on the scene and we have made all state resources available to the community. We will continue working with local officials to help those affected.”

  1. Of course since the alleged gunperson is white, we get a full description…”gunman as a white 18-20 years old male with longer black hair, a small build, and wearing a white or blue t-shirt.”
    If it was non-white, there would be no description….

  2. A wealthy Chicago suburb, well now something will get done. The poor can kill the poor all day long. But when it starts happening to the wealthy? Well now that’s different, something needs to be done. “Lightfoot🦶is going to have to do something now.” She’s going to have to come down as “heavyfoot 🦶

  3. What is happening in Chicago is tragic! The most tragic part is no one is doing anything to stop the violence? Neighbors are killing neighbors!!

    • You know I ask myself the same question seems like the Doctor was a plant. oh it was an AR-15 I love to know how the heck he would know what gun it was. I think it was a bigger caliber to be that many casualties. Or maybe there was two shooters.

      • I thought the same. How would he know what kind of rifle. And it almost sounded like an automatic. Very rapid succession.

  4. This is tragic for sure, how did the doctor know it’s an AR15 type weapon, cops only say they have retrieved a weapon from the scene. Pay attention people, these mass shootings are not happening just because someone just decides to go out and shoot the place up. They have to be groomed in such activities to think they are doing the right thing. Under Obummer we had multiple mass shootings, under Trump crickets and all of a sudden under Magoos watch we’ve had 6 such events right along with vehicles running into crowds. The doom and gloom of the demnuts outrage has lead us to these events.

  5. He left a rifle at the scene. Who in their right mind would do that!
    False flag written all over it.
    The potato just gave a speech and barely mentioned the shooting. Touting the economy as the best in the world and criticizing the Supreme Court.
