For the massacre, the killer used a high-capacity rifle similar to the Ar-15, the most widely used weapon in mass shootings in the United States. All of the weapons in his possession were purchased from the area.

Also on his page appears a photo of a demonstration of the National Front, a white racist organization. The show in Highland Park had just begun, about ten minutes later, when the killer opened fire on thousands of people who were enjoying a day of joy and relaxation with the family. He fired from a rooftop and used a rifle that officers later found.

It was awful,” said the woman, still in shock. Another witness who was driving to the parade when the shooting began said: “It was a chaotic scene. I tried to contact my family and found that they had taken refuge inside a building near the road.” Watch people flee on one side. for the other. A third witness said: “It was scary, I’ve never seen anything like this in my whole life. People are terrified and covered in blood.” Pictures that spread on websites and social media showed upturned chairs, abandoned strollers, a thermos and cooler bags lying on the sidewalk next to the blood of wounded or dead people. Scenes of panic and terror for families who were just celebrating a moment with their loved ones. Joe Biden and his wife Jill said they were “shocked” by another episode of “idiot violence”. During the White House’s Independence Day celebrations, the US President requested a minute of silence for the victims and assured that he would continue the fight against the guns.
