Highland Park parade shooting was planned for weeks; gunman dressed like a woman during the rampage, police say

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. — The man held by police in connection with the mass shooting at a July Fourth parade planned the attack for weeks — and dressed like a woman to avoid detection, authorities said Tuesday.

Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, 21, who was picked up by police hours after the rampage, scaled a fire escape ladder to make himself a sniper’s nest to fire on paradegoers below on Monday, authorities said.

An image of Crimo, obtained by NBC Chicago from a senior law enforcement official, appeared to show the young man in a blue-and-white blouse and with longer hair.

  1. Guns are already in the streets crime and mass killings are perpetual, as we see there are SOME normal people purchasing guns legally commiting crimes.
