In contemplation of a second shooting, the parade shooting suspect
Authorities said Wednesday that the man accused of killing seven at an Independence Day parade confessed to police that he opened fire from a rooftop and fled into the Madison, Wisconsin, area, contemplating shooting up an event there.
As a result of the shooting, another American community is reeling - Highland Park near Lake Michigan, an affluent suburb with about 30,000 residents. Major injuries were sustained, some critical, and hundreds of spectators and marchers fled for their lives.
The suspect turned back to Illinois, where he was later arrested, after deciding he was not prepared to pull off another attack in Wisconsin, Lake County Major Crime Task Force spokesman Christopher Covelli said at a news conference following a hearing where the 21-year-old man was denied bond.
