What we know about the Highland Park shooting suspect

Hours after gunfire interrupted the Highland Park, Illinois, July Fourth parade, killing six people and wounding dozens more, police apprehended the man they believe was responsible.

Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, 22, has yet to be formally charged in the shooting, which authorities have said they believe he carried out by climbing onto the rooftop of a nearby business and opening fire on the parade minutes after it started, sending parade-goers fleeing for safety.
He was taken into custody soon after police publicly identified him as a “persoon van belang” who the FBI said wasbeing sought for his alleged involvement in the shooting of multiple individualsat Highland Park’s Independence Day parade. Police captured him near Lake Forest, Illinois, after he led police on a brief chase when a North Chicago police officer attempted a traffic stop.
      After he was apprehended, authorities also referred to Crimo as a “verdagte,” a term which, in hierdie geval, was “synonymous” met “persoon van belang,” Christopher Covelli, spokesperson for the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, gesê.
        Law enforcement officialsprocessed a significant amount of digital evidence today which helped lead investigators in this direction,” hy het gesê.
          This individual is believed to have been responsible for what happened and the investigation will continue,” Covelli said.
          Here’s what we know about him.

          Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering believes the weapon used by the suspected shooter Monday was purchased legally, she told CNN’s Adrienne Broaddus Tuesday.

          Covelli previously said firearm evidence was found on the rooftop of a business near the shooting, describing the gun as ahigh-powered rifle.” Op daardie stadium, authorities were working to trace the firearm to find out who purchased it and its origins, according to Bureau of Alcohol, Tabak, Firearms and Explosives spokesperson Kim Nerheim.
          N somtotaal van 26 pasiënte — van wie die ouderdom wissel 8 aan 85 — were received at Highland Park Hospital, het dr. Brigham Temple, medical director of the NorthShore University Health System. Four or five patients were children, Temple said.
          Nineteen of the 25 gunshot victims were treated and have been discharged, hy het gesê.

          He posted violent imagery online

          The suspected shooter posted music on several major streaming platforms under the pseudonym Awake the Rapper, and he apparently made and posted music videos online featuring ominous lyrics and animated scenes of gun violence.
          In one video titledAre you Awake,” a cartoon animation of a stick-figure shooter resembling the suspect’s appearance is seen wearing tactical gear and carrying out an attack with a rifle. Crimo, seen with multicolored hair and face tattoos, vertel, “I need to just do it. It is my destiny.
          In another video titledToy Soldier, a similar stick-figure resembling the suspect is depicted lying face down on the floor in a pool of his own blood, surrounded by police officers with their guns drawn.
          Several of the suspect’s online postingsreflected a plan and a desire to commit carnage for a long time in advance,” Mayor Rotering said in an interview with NBC’s Hoda Kotb on “Vandag.
          And it’s one of those things where you step back and you say, wat het gebeur? How did somebody become this angry and hateful,” sy het gese, “to then take it out on innocent people who literally were just having a family day out?”

          His uncle saw no warning signs

          Rotering knew the suspect years ago, when she was his Cub Scout pack leader, sy het gese, vertel CNN, “Many years ago, he was just a little boy, a quiet little boy that I knew.
          It breaks my heart. I see this picture and through the tattoos, I see the little boy,” sy het gese. “I don’t know what got him to this point.
          The suspect’s uncle, Paul A. Crimo, was “hartseer” to learn his nephew was believed to be responsible for Monday’s shooting, vertel CNN,” There were no signs that I saw that would make him do this.
          The suspect lived in an apartment behind a house in Highwood, Illinois, owned by his father, said Paul Crimo, who also lives at the house. He last saw his nephew Sunday evening, hy het gesê, sitting on a recliner in the house and looking on his computer.
          Everything was as normal,” hy het gesê.
          To his knowledge, Crimo did not have a job, Paul Crimo told CNN, though he worked at Panera Bread before the Covid-19 pandemic. Paul Crimo said he had never seen the suspect engage in violence or concerning behavior. He didn’t know of his nephew’s political views, óf, hom beskryf as 'n “stil” persoon.
          He’s usually on his own. He’s a lonely, quiet person. He keeps everything to himself.
            The suspect’s father and Paul Crimo’s brother, Robert Crimo Jr., previously ran for mayor, hy het gesê. “We are good people here, and to have this is devastating.
            I’m so heartbroken for all the families who lost their lives,” Paul Crimo said.
