Highland Park shooting: Suspect charged with 7 counts of murder

Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Highland Park shooting: Suspect charged with 7 counts of murder” – below is their description.

The man accused of opening fire on a Fourth of July parade near the city of Chicago in the United States has been charged with seven counts of murder.

Illinois State Attorney Eric Rinehart said on Tuesday that the suspected gunman, Robert E Crimo III, faces a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole if he is convicted.

Reinhart said the first-degree murder charges would be followed by “dozens of more charges” and that he would ask that Crimo remain held in custody without bail at the suspect’s first court appearance, scheduled for Wednesday.

The young man is accused of shooting his victims from a sniper’s perch on a rooftop above the parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, Illinois.
