Prosecutors charged the suspected gunman in the shooting rampage at a Fourth of July parade in this Chicago suburb with seven counts of first-degree murder Tuesday, hoping to put him behind bars for the rest of his life.
Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart said that, if convicted, Robert E. “Bobby” Crimo III faces a mandatory sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole. “These are just the first of many charges that will be filed against Mr. Crimo,” Rinehart said. “I want to emphasize that. There will be more charges. We anticipate dozens of more charges.”
Police said Crimo fired more than 70 shots from a rooftop Monday, killing seven people and wounding nearly 40 more with a legally purchased assault rifle before fleeing. He was captured that evening after an intense manhunt.
