Mass shootings have unfortunately become the norm in the United States, and from what it seems, they are only increasing by the day. People were still recovering from the Uvalde massacre earlier this year, but were unprepared for what might happen next.
A mass shooting occurred in Highland Park, Illinois, on July 4th. According to NBC News, the perpetrator is 22-year-old Robert E. Crimo. He was said to have been apprehended after an hour of searching.
According to the Daily Beast, Crimo tried to be a rapper and posted disturbing music videos onYouTube. His rapper name was Awake the Rapper, and the music video for one song depicted the same events as on Monday.
Crimo may have killed six people and wounded at least 31 others when he opened fire from a rooftop in the direction of paradegoers. According to Deadline, the video featured an animated, heavily-armed individual firing a long pistol at spectators before lying in a pool of blood after apparently being shot by the cops.
Crimoinside an empty classroom dressed in tactical gear and holding the American Flag was shown in a video for another song. We'll update you on this exciting story.
