The Highland Park suspect is a young Caucasian man who fired a rifle during a rooftop parade

Police are searching for a white man they believe opened fire from a rooftop Monday morning during a July 4 parade in a Chicago suburb.

Breitbart News reported that at least six people were killed and 24 injured in the incident.

NBC Chicago noted that shots rang out at 10:14 a.m. in the Highland Park neighborhood of Chicago.

Police are looking for “a white male between the ages of 18 and 20 with a small build and longer black hair.”

Lake County Sheriff’s Sgt. Christopher Covelli said the suspect fired into the parade from a rooftop.

Covelli added: “We ask everyone to stay indoors. Stay alert now. This person has not been identified. Of course, at this point it seems to be completely random.

The Chicago Sun-Times quoted Highland Park resident Miles Zaremski. “I heard 20 to 25 gunshots, which came in quick succession,” Zarenski said. “So it couldn’t just be a handgun or a shotgun.”

Parade spectator Alexander Sandoval said: ‘We saw the marchers and the Navy tank go by and when I first heard the gunshots I thought they were the ones. saluted the flag and fired blanks. But then I saw people start running and the shooting continued. We started running.
