At least six people died and 24 were wounded in a shooting at a July Fourth parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, and officers are searching for a suspect who likely fired on the festivities from a rooftop, police said Monday.

Highland Park Police Commander Chris O’Neill, the incident commander on scene, urged people to shelter in place as authorities search for the suspect, described as a white male wearing a white or blue T-shirt.

Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said at a news conference that the gunman apparently opened fire on parade-goers from a rooftop using a rifle that was recovered at the scene. He didn’t know which building.

Covelli said police believe there was only one shooter and warned that he should still be considered armed and dangerous.

Police have not released any details about the victims or wounded.

The parade began around 10 a.m. but it was suddenly halted about 10 minutes later after shots were fired. Hundreds of parade-goers — some visibly bloodied — fled the parade route, leaving behind chairs, baby strollers, plush toys, bicycles and blankets.

When religious and political leaders ask Nigerians to arm themselves, they should remember that those who made such decisions in their countries are paying darely for it.

One of U.S biggest challenge is gun violence. That's one of the disadvantages of legalising use of guns.

Because psychopaths go also see money buy am.

This is why i am not going to the fireworks or any parade tonight. I have said it and will keep saying it, as the economy dwindles, so will the shootings increase. This just explains what the US society has become. No be me una go use do stats.

This is the most boring celebration i have witnessed since i have been here. Normally, people start shooting fireworks from July 1. This year is very quiet.

UPDATE:

I talk am, another shooting in Philadelphia. 2 officers shot.

Since it’s almost impossible for islam Terrorist to carry out terrorist attacks on US, they now resort to preying on American teens suffering from PTSD and other mental illness to do their dirty work.
