"My campaign team and I were gathering at the start of the parade when the shooting started," Schneider said on Twitter. "My team and I are safe and secure. We are monitoring the situation closely."

Robert Crimo has been identified as a person of interest in this crime.  Police are on the lookout for him as we write.
