Shooting suspect contemplated second attack in another city, police say

Law enforcement said that the suspect in the July 4 parade shooting in Highland Park, Illinois, considered carrying out another attack in Madison, Wisconsin, with another weapon in his car. Speaking to reporters outside the Lake County courthouse, Lake County State's Attorney Eric Rinehart said additional details were developed during Robert Crimo III’s bond hearing. The prosecutor said that Crimo admitted to firing on paradegoers during his interview with police after he was taken into custody. #CNN #News


  1. It seems to me that the information that is coming out over this tragic situation is much better than we saw in Texas.

    1. @Deborah Godley Yep, Texas is where you can buy Ammo off the self and have to ask for condoms which are hidden behind the counter.

  2. It is so sad that every potential perpetrator clears the bar to purchase assault rifles because of half-hearted background checks and regulations, only then to be labeled as unfit to carry the weapons after they have killed 5 to 50 civilians. This trade is so not worthwhile just to know their true self AFTER they have committed the shootings.

    1. @Ronald Nixon according to both Heller and Bruen there absolutely are. They just have to be strictly applied and essentially be uniform. So banning an automatic machine gun (as defined by a specific bill), or limiting purchases to 21 is fine, but saying “prove a threat”, or “this cannot be used outside the home for self defense” is not.

    2. @godsakezz the right to bear arms is an essential right of every individual and cannot be trifled with. You cant just take that right away from someone because they had a bad day once and isssued some meaningless threats. You need hard evidence for such an infringement on someone’s basic rights. Just imagine someone would take your guns away, how would you feel?

    3. @Jason Timmons I don’t think so. Many red states have gun control and regulations stripped to its undergarments, and the flexibility to purchase guns there are total liability for neighbour states with tighter gun laws. It was once mentioned that 60% of all guns used in shootings were purchased out of state to where the shootings occurred. In this case, this individual had past history of making threats with knives as well as threatening to murder his entire family, yet this record was not even considered when he finally made his gun purchase, with or without the help of his father. This just doesn’t make sense with these half-hearted checks, if there is even, and then say gun laws and control don’t work. Just like how Trump handled the covid crisis from day one.

    4. @Gulliver the Gullible After that, you can then let us know whether you feel strict background checks are at all indeed common sense to have, and that whether those individuals who already showed symptoms of wanting to murder people are indeed people who should carry arms whenever they want. Or perhaps, you may finally start to realize the rest of us matured in the society should act as a parent to them to protect them from harm as well as the harm they would have caused if we didn’t stop them beforehand.

  3. These people seem really professional, efficiant and transparent. It’s MILES away from the actions and messaging from Uvalde officials, unfortunately…

    1. Remember when Sheriff Deputy Scot Peterson refused to go into Marjorie Stoneman HS in Parkland Florida and ran and hid?
      Yeah, Peterson was charged with seven counts of child neglect, three counts of culpable negligence and one count of perjury. Why aren’t the Uvalde cowards being prosecuted similarly? I know that there’s something fishy going on in Uvalde. It’s probably just protecting the brotherhood. But, seriously, I still can’t figure out how and why they just sat there listening to children and teachers be killed and bleeding out. I’m a normal person and I stayed in an apartment with a flash fire to try to save my friends 2 cats. I was pet sitting. Yes, it was stupid. A flash fire is not a normal fire and I didn’t know that. But, I was fine. The cats were fine. The point is that it’s instinct to save children. And, people, and animals. How did they sit there for over an hour? Even if someone told me to stand down, the next bullet I heard would have sent me in. And, I’m not a trained law enforcement officer! And, I know I am not alone in that. Something had to be going on. Cowardice can’t be the end of the story. Seriously, isn’t Don’t Mess With Texas their state motto?

      I feel like I’m losing my faith in humanity because of this BS. They need to be reprimanded and prosecuted.

    2. @lizzys BEAUTY show etc. What can we say? The gene pool died out for whites at the Alamo 😁😁😁

  4. *An outbreak of plague swept the city. Watch the video, everyone is shocked* EVERYDAYS.ML

    Mr.Dunn – respect for you.

  5. This is music to my ears to hear journalists and officials in essence working together – asking and answering relevant questions that are aimed towards imroving things and finding out useful, relevant information for the public! Good work that community!

    1. Why? Did his parents buy him the rifle? No? Unless you have reasoning to believe they assisted him, which there currently is none, your just calling for a with hunt.

    2. @GodEnderX very bad timing for this comment because the police just put out a statement saying that his father helped him buy guns after he threatened to kill everyone in his house

    3. @GodEnderX
      The father expedited the gun license for the son.
      And…..ahmmmm….look at the thing.
      And….smh…Daddy is a MAGAtt

  6. Seems like police wouldn’t be confused about the rules if we just made one national set of rules…

  7. Thanks you Mr Rinehart for calling out what needs to be done. A bipartisan law to ban this type of assault weapon. We (US Citizens) have had enough

    1. I’ve had enough of the police and DA’s dropping the ball and not enforcing the laws already on the books. Instead they want to make news laws that will affect the law abiding and not the criminals.

  8. Thank you for being clear and detailed with the Community Deputy Chief Covelli β™₯οΈπŸ‘ŠπŸΎ
    And the DA Eric is doing a great job here.
    And his Parents had to know what was going on. The Parents should be held responsible too!! Investigate them.

  9. I can see owning ONE gun for protection, but a weapon of war where a head or body can be blown into pieces that is totally a different story

    1. @Steven Mitchell he’s talking about semi automatic large clip capacity weapons. Only military personnel should be using those. I use high power rifles for hunting and don’t need more than a couple of shots.

  10. This tragedy should be a wake up call for people. If a loved one makes threats, get them charged with that crime. That will mean their name is flagged if they try to buy a gun.
    As difficult as it sometimes is to accept that a loved one is very troubled, other lives may depend on you doing so.
    And get your kid into therapy if they seem depressed or obsessed with guns, violence and mass shootings.

  11. It doesn’t matter. These authorities failed to “when you see something do something”. All his bizarre and dangerous behavior was ignored. But why.

    1. There are a lot of weird people out there. If police investigated all of them there wouldn’t be time for anything else.

    2. I don’t even like that I am about to say this, but race and gender are at play. Even when it isn’t a white male cop because the entire identity of most Police Departments is white and male. Sometimes it’s unconscious. And, for clarity, there’s a difference between Caucasian and White. Think of the stereotype of a Karen. It’s not a perfect fit (and there’s a lot of flaws in that stereotype but it’s easy shorthand because we’ve all seen a Karen video. But, there are Karen’sof color and Karen’s who are men). Anyway, remember the Buffalo grocery store shooter? What a little snot. Anyway, the officers taking him to court had so much empathy and were so gentle so as to not hurt him. They also looked so sadly at him. I thought I was going blind until I read a case study describing the identifications that occur between White male cops and White male assailants. When interviewed, it was embarrassing what these cops said. Like “he could have been a good kid.” Again, I hope it’s an unconscious thought process because I don’t want to believe otherwise. But, obviously racism and the police are not new friends.

      I’m glad they took this little s*it in alive because it’s important that we study the impulses behind gun violence so as to stop it. I’m am a private practice Psychotherapist and University professor, so knowledge about what makes people tick is an occupational hazard. This is a caveat to contextualize the following on the systematic racism in policing. The cops were notified about this kids behavior many times but “couldn’t find anything to arrest him for,” while how many men and male kids of color are shot each year because cops thought they had a weapon. Too many. But, these white male mass and school scooters can be reported to the Police, the Sheriff, the bloody FBI and nothing is done.

      Please know that I’m not pointing the finger (although it would feel good) at anyone because that is rarely generative. But, I do believe that law enforcement officers do have over identifications with young white males when it comes to violence (from assault, rape and firearm abuse). We must attend to this so as to make it stop. Over identifications can work insofar as it makes you feel more empathy for that person. That can come in the form of not seeing obvious red flags or giving someone a few more chances. This behavior is based upon not seeing this young white male as “bad,” or dangerous. I.E. “He’s just a little bit odd, but there’s no chance of violent, anti-social behavior.” Now, often–but not always, the lack of this identification when dealing with a male of color, it’s easy to see that lack of empathy insofar as the overt fear that is demonstrated by treating a person of color in a way that displays no care for their body including but not limited to unnecessary force during frisking, handcuffing and general manipulation of the person’s body, with the paradigmatic example being law enforcement officers being so callous and/or fearful that a male of color is murdered despite not being guilty of any crime, nor carrying any weapon.

      I know this is long winded, but racism and racial identifications (which are wildly different but do have some intersections) in the US are on one hand easy to detect, especially if you are the recipient of racist behaviors and actions. However, on the other hand, if racial identifications and racist ideology as well as acts of racism were so easy to understand, we’d likely be closer to solving racism. And, if it helps to know my personal investment in researching matters of race and racism, I am mixed race. My mother is Native American/Indigenous. We are both members of the Kiowa Nation of Oklahoma and while my mother grew up on a reservation, I only spent 4 years on the same reservation. My father is Japanese, born in the US. His parents moved to the US less that a year before Japan bombed Pearl Harbor in Hawaii and as with all Japanese American people/families, they spent many years living in the interment camps. The statement of banal facts is not made out any desire to “guilt” anyone. Rather, I’m terribly interested in how both sides of my family experienced similar and vastly different types of racism in the past and the present and how each race is formed in relation to notions of the US, the theory of the melting pot as well as in relation to the specific forms of racism that each side face. As for myself, I am definitely fascinated by how people read my race in general. I get asked a lot, “what I am?” It’s a mildly irritating question, so I make people guess now, which they are completely delighted to do.

      And, of course, my larger investment in the analysis of race and racism comes down to unnecessary and unbridled institutional, systematic and personal deployments of racism and racist violence and thought.

  12. Thank you CNN for doing such a professional job reporting on this tragedy. I hope a tragedy like this never happens again!!!!!

  13. No problem. Fox News has it figured out. Tucker says shootings happen because of women nagging young men. Laura says it’s that damn reefer. R politician, Boebert said, after pointing out that 3 people were shot in Denmark that, “See, strong gun control doesn’t stop mass shootings”. She neglected to point out that: Gun violent deaths per 100,000 people is USA-3.964. Denmark-0.141. Her state had 364 murders last year. Denmark-39. Roughly the same population.

  14. I’m so tired of seeing stories like this, knowing what we can do to help stop this, but being blocked by doing ANYTHING because lobbying is a thing that’s allowed in the government of this country. Let’s be real, if not for lobbyist, REAL change would have happened decades ago. πŸ™

  15. Straightforward, clear and collected, very professional, and untainted by partisan polemics, improper speculations, outright falsehoods, or political grandstanding β€” well-done, Deputy Chief Covelli and State Attorney Rinehart. What a difference to TX Gov. Abbott’s ugly clown-show at Uvalde, after the shootings at Robb Elementary School!. And thanks to the video team: great job, especially coping with the noises of passing traffic!

    1. Completely agree! This should be the standard, but the clown shows in other highly politicized areas have normalized the Tom foolery we often see. Proud Chicagoan here – devastated to see our fellow neighbors go through this.
