Former investigator on Illinois parade shooting: Circumstances suggest there was pre-planning involved

“好, it does start to at least suggest is that this person had you know, there’s pre-planning involved. Perhaps it’s someone who had access to one of those buildings or knew the buildings and knew the vantage point,” former FBI Investigator Bill Daly told “美国报道。”

Multiple people are feared dead after a reported shooting at a 4th of July parade in Highland Park, 伊利诺伊州, 在星期一.

Witnesses say crowds fled the sound of gunfire, and others saw at least five bloodied people lying on the ground and another under a blanket, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

Daly explained further that assuming that the information about how the shooter fired at victims is correct, the perpetrator likely canvassed the area before the mass shooting.

If this is what we’re hearing is correct, 再次, and we’d like to caution as we do this situation, 因此, that may not be completely accurate information, but understanding that if there was a higher vantage point, whether it be a rooftop or out of a window, would mean that person would have perhaps done some type of canvasing,” 戴利说.

And knowing the area, knowing how to get up there undetected and also looking for one where they would be able to kind of take that that kind of surprise element and cascade that down on their victims, unfortunately.

The number of victims remains unclear. Police have reportedly requested a canine unit to assist in finding the suspect. The suspect remains at large.

伊利诺伊州州长. JB Pritzker stated to WGN that he believes there are at least nine shooting victims. The outlet reported that at least two were killed, according to unnamed law enforcement sources.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office, where Highland Park is located, confirmed that a shooting had occurred and urged people to stay out of the area. The sheriff’s office did not confirm the number of victims, 然而.

Highland Park Police Department confirmed they are responding to anactive situationand will soon release a statement to Fox News Digital. The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Fox.

Daly said that the situation in Chicago is going to require whatever resources are available, including local, county, and state police and the FBI. 此外, Daly added that with all the information available so far, “there wouldn’t be any necessarily federal jurisdiction.

They have the resources, the availability to be able to help to conduct forensics, perhaps if there is any kind of concern of this person fleeing across state lines or, 你懂, into other surrounding communities. They may be able to assist through some of their technology and their communications. So it does become a full effort.
