Who is Christopher Covelli ?

Lake County Major Crimes Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli told a news conference that “several of the deceased victims” died at the scene and one was taken to a hospital and died there. Police have not released details about the victims or injuries.

Lake County Coroner Jennifer Banek said all five people killed in the parade were adults, but she had no information on the sixth victim who was taken to a hospital and died there. One of those killed was a Mexican citizen, Roberto Velasco, Mexico’s director of North American affairs, said on Twitter Monday. He said two other Mexicans were injured.


The NorthShore University Health Center received 26 patients after the attack. All but one had gunshot wounds, said Dr. Brigham Temple, medical director of emergency preparedness. Their ages ranged from 8 to 85, and Temple estimated that four or five patients were children.

Temple said 19 of them have been treated and released. Others were transferred to other hospitals, while two patients, in stable condition, remained at Highland Park Hospital.

The shooter opened fire around 10:15 a.m., when the parade was three-quarters full, authorities said.

Highland Park Police Commander Chris O’Neill, the scene’s incident commander, said the gunman apparently used a “high-powered rifle” to shoot from a spot high up in a commercial building where he was ” very hard to watch.” He said the rifle was recovered at the scene. Police also found a ladder attached to the building.

“Very random, very intentional and a very sad day,” Covelli said.

President Joe Biden said Monday that he and first lady Jill Biden were “shocked by the senseless gun violence that has once again caused the American community pain this Independence Day.” He said he had “requested federal law enforcement to assist in the urgent search for the shooter, who remains at large at this time.”

Biden signed the most far-reaching gun violence bill passed by Congress in decades, a compromise that showed both progress on a long-intractable issue and the deep-seated partisan divide that persists.


Several nearby cities canceled events, including parades and fireworks, with some noting the Highland Park shooter was still at large. Evanston, Deerfield, Skokie, Waukegan and Glencoe have canceled events. The Chicago White Sox also announced on Twitter that a planned fireworks display after the game was canceled due to the shooting.

More than 100 law enforcement officers were called to the parade scene or dispatched to find the suspected shooter.

More than a dozen police officers surrounded a house listed as Crimo’s address in Highland Park Monday night. Some officers held rifles as they stared at the house. A large armored truck, marked “Police Rescue Vehicle,” was occupying the middle of the road near the residence. Police blocked roads leading to the home in a wooded neighborhood near a golf course, allowing only select police vehicles through a narrow outer perimeter.

Suspect Arrested

A 22-year-old man identified as a person of interest in a shooting during an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago that killed at least six people, wounded at least 30 and caused hundreds to flee was arrested Thursday. Monday night after an hour. pursuit, police said.

Highland Park Police Chief Lou Jogmen said Monday night that a police officer briefly chased Robert E. Crimo III as he drove about five miles north of where the shooting occurred before the man pulled over and was arrested.
