Nearby towns have canceled their parades as a caution against similar attacks.
It went from a normal patriotic parade to mass panic in seconds.
FOX News reporter Mike Tobin reported moments ago that there are reports that the shooter was firing at the crowd from “an elevated position” possibly from the rooftop of a building.
Tobin also said police are looking for the shooter and describe the scene as an active shooter situation.
Highland Park is a very liberal suburb of Chicago.
