From WWW.CBSNEWS.COM

Six people were killed when a gunman opened fire at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, and around two dozen people were taken to area hospitals with injuries, police said. Some of the victims, including at least one child, were in critical condition when they were transported from the scene, Highland Park Fire Chief Joe Schrage told reporters.

Robert "Bobby" Crimo III, who had been identified as a person of interest, was arrested around 6:30 p.m. local time in connection with the shooting, nearly nine hours after the shooting. Officials said his vehicle was spotted and he was stopped after a brief pursuit. He is being taken to the Highland Park Police Department as the investigation continues.

Crimo was taken into custody about six miles north of where the shooting took place.

Police and witnesses earlier in the day said it appeared the gunman was shooting at the crowd from the roof of a business near the parade route.
