No bail for accused Highland Park shooter, who also considered 2nd attack – Chicago Tribune


Good afternoon, Chicago.

The accused Highland Park parade shooter appeared in court this morning where a judge ordered him held without bond on seven counts of first-degree murder.

Just after the hearing, Lake County Deputy Sheriff Chris Covelli dropped a startling new allegation, telling reporters Robert E. “Bobby” Crimo III happened upon a “celebration” in the Madison, Wisc., area after fleeing Highland Park and “seriously contemplated using the firearm he had in his vehicle to commit another shooting.” Covelli said Crimo decided against it because he had not done enough research.

In the wake of the mass shooting, Ravinia Festival has canceled concerts through Sunday and organizers of festivals and events in Lake County are reassessing their plans for the summer.
