22-year-old suspect in the Chicago-area parade shooting is detained by police

Robert E. Crimo III, a suspect who goes by the moniker "rapper," is shown in footage from his since-deleted YouTube channel wearing a helmet and a bulletproof vest inside a classroom.

According to Highland Park Police Chief Lou Jogmen, Robert E. Crimo III was briefly pursued by a policeman as he travelled about five miles north.

On July 4, 2022, in Highland Park, Illinois, police conduct an investigation outside the residence of the mother of the guy held in the mass shooting during the Fourth of July parade.

Hours after the incident, President Joe Biden, who just less than ten days ago signed a bipartisan gun safety law, released a statement.

"Jill and I are shocked by the senseless gun violence that has yet again brought grief to an American community on this Independence Day." He noted that the new law "includes actions that will save lives."

The governor of Illinois brands the shooter a "monster."
