A shooter opened fire on Four of July parade-goers from a rooftop, killing at least six people and wounding at least 30 in Highland Park, a Chicago suburb. Witnesses have described how the celebration turned into a nightmare. One father, Alexander, said, 'We ran behind the building and I put my son in a dumpster. He sat there with his dog and I went back to look for the rest of my family.' The governor of Illinois said he was 'furious' at gun violence in his country: 'There are no words for the kind of evil that shows up at a public celebration of freedom, hides on a roof and shoots innocent people with an assault rifle.' An eight-hour search took place before a person of interest was taken into custody
