(The Center Square) – The suspect in the mass shooting that killed seven and injured dozens more Monday at a Chicago suburb's Independence Day parade is being charged with seven counts of first-degree murder, Lake County State's Attorney Eric Rinehart said Tuesday evening. Rinehart called the shootings in Highland Park a premeditated attack.
More charges are coming against 21-year-old Robert Crimo, who was identified Monday as a person of interest in the shootings before he was apprehended by authorities about nine hours after they occurred.
"There will be dozens of more charges against Mr. Crimo," Rinehart said. The investigation continues to be open and active.
