Remember Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country! Gun control does not work at all!! This shooting is more proof of that!!
Five people are dead and at least 16 are injured after a shooting at a July 4th parade in the affluent Chicago suburb of Highland Park.
The shooter – who remains at large – is said to have opened fire from the roof of what was an Uncle Dan’s outdoor outfitting store, picking off people in the crowd who at first confused the sound of gunshots to with firecrackers and fireworks.
Chicago Sun-Times reporter Lynn Sweet was at the parade when gunfire rang out. She has since shared photos and videos from the event which show people lying on the ground and has described it as a ‘bloodbath’.
Illinois Governor JB Pritzker says he is aware of the shooting and is monitoring the ‘situation’.
Witnesses described a ‘sickening’ scene and is it feared that children are among the dead.
‘I saw multiple lifeless bodies, people in a pool of blood. It is sickening,’ witness Miles Zaremski told CNN.
