Robert Crimo III, accused of attacking a 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, was charged with seven counts of first-degree murder.
A Chicago prosecutor charged Crimo for every victim he killed.
“Today, the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office has charged Robert Crimo III with seven counts of first-degree murder for the killing spree that he has unleashed against our community,” said Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart.
“These are just the first of many charges that will be filed against Mr. Crimo,” Rinehart said at a press conference.
According to Rinehart, Crimo will face dozen more charges. The gunman will receive a mandatory life sentence without parole.

New charges for Crimo:
Robert Crimo III might face dozen additional charges such as attempted murder, aggravated battery, and more.
“In the courtroom, we will seek the maximum sentence against this offender. Not because we seek vengeance, but because justice and the healing process demand it,” Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart mentioned.
The police confirmed that Crimo planned the attack for weeks.
He bought the assault rifle legally in the state of Illinois and fired 70 rounds.
“Following the attack, Crimo exited the roof, dropped his rifle, and he blended in with the crowd, and he escape.”
“He walked to his mother’s home, who lived in the area, and he blended right in with everybody else,” said Christopher Covelli, Lake County Major Crimes Task Force member.
Crimo was a raging Donald Trump supporter.
He is another addition to the infamous rogues gallery supporting Donald Trump.
