When Jackman refused to contact the suspect at this stage. Police said more information needed to connect it to six killed and dozens. Lake County Coroner Jennifer Punk said in an earlier press conference that five of the six victims of the attack were adults who died on the scene. All five were identified and their families notified. Highland Park Fire Chief Joe Schridge said a child was among the 22 people who were taken to local hospitals with serious injuries.

According to the sergeant, the authorities currently have no reason to believe there was more than one gunman. Christopher Cawley of the Lake County Serious Crimes Unit. The shooter used a high-powered rifle, which is now being investigated by the Federal Office of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, on the roof of the business.

Highland Park Police Dr Chris O’Neill said the crime scene remains active and officers are clearing buildings in the area. People who hid in this place will be led to safe places.

Witnesses describe confusion, panic and disbelief
Miles Yaremsky told NPR that when he first heard the shots, he confused them with a spare car or fireworks. “Then suddenly the crowd … started running,” he said. “Then I went a little further and suddenly I saw blood on the cement and I see people in pools of blood … “I knew there was a mass shooting.”

Yaremsky said he rushed to help, but was quickly taken away by police and paramedics who arrived on the scene within minutes.

“I saw the slaughter and I almost broke down,” he said, amazed by the events. Yaremsky has lived in Highland Park since 1976 and describes it as a warm and peaceful community that contrasts with the chaos he has experienced.

“It’s surreal. It was supposed to be a science fiction movie I just saw, but unfortunately it wasn’t Our Country is a Terrible Place.

The Illinois government. J. b. Pritzker called for prayer after the “devil who was released this morning,” but prayer alone will not solve the problem of gun violence.

“There are no words for the monster who waited and opened fire on a crowd of families with children who were celebrating the holidays with their community. “There are no words for the evil that steals the hopes, dreams and future of our neighbors,” Pritzker said in a statement.

“We must – and want to – stop this gun violence.”

“Our hearts go out to the families of the victims at this terrible time,” Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rothring said. “On a day when we gather to celebrate togetherness and freedom, we mourn the loss of life and fight against the terror that has befallen us.”
