Suspect charged with 7 murders

The suspect in the July 4 shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, was charged Tuesday with seven counts of first-degree murder.

Robert Crimo III, 21, is accused of killing seven people and wounding dozens of others when he allegedly opened fire on a parade route during an Independence Day celebration Monday.

“We do believe Crimo pre-planned this attack for several weeks,” Lake County Sheriff’s Deputy Chief Chris Covelli said Tuesday.

Police say Crimo scaled a fire escape to the roof of a building, where he opened fire with a high-powered rifle, shooting more than 70 rounds into the crowd. He dressed in “women’s clothing” during the attack to hide his face tattoos so he could blend in with the crowd, Covelli said. Crimo was arrested several hours later.
