Highland Park IL shooting: Multiple people hurt along parade route, sources say; Fourth of July events canceled

HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. — Multiple people were shot along a parade route in the Illinois suburb of Highland Park, north of Chicago, Monday morning, sources said.

The shooter was reportedly still active shortly after 11am

Sources said the person may be shooting from the top of a tall building.

Highland Park officials asked residents to avoid the downtown area Monday morning as police responded to “an incident.”

The city of Highland Park provided very little information about the incident in a Facebook post shortly before 10:45 a.m., saying only that the city’s fourth annual festival had been canceled.

The village of Deerfield tweeted at 10:50 a.m. that there was a shooting in Highland Park and Deerfield Family Days at Jewett Park were canceled.

Highland Park had a number of Fourth of July events planned for Monday.
