Robert E. Grimmo was taken into custody near Lake Forest, Illinois, authorities confirmed.

Robert E. Grimmo III, 22, was identified by police as a person of interest in the July 4 parade mass shooting in Highland Park, Illinois.

Authorities said at a brief news conference that Crimo was identified by a North Chicago police officer who attempted to take him into custody.

Grimeau fled and led officers on a short chase before he was taken into custody without incident in Lake Forest, Illinois. Grimo will be taken to the Highland Park Police Department.

Authorities say Grimeau is still considered a “person of interest” as they investigate and firmly link him to the crime scene.

At least six people have been killed and 31 injured in a shooting during an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, Illinois, according to a city news release.

Mexican Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said the shooting left one Mexican dead and two other citizens of Mexican origin wounded.

Illinois Sen. says he wants to help the Highland Park community get all the resources it needs. Tammy Duckworth said, regarding the arrest of the suspect and the weeks and months as people recover from the tragedy.

Illinois Governor JP Pritzker addressed the Highland Park community, saying “there are no words” to describe the loss and grief felt by the families of those killed and injured this holiday season.

“It’s devastating to have an American celebration ripped away by our uniquely American plague,” Pritzker said. “A day dedicated to freedom has exposed the one freedom we, as a nation, refuse to protect. Our fellow citizens’ freedom to live without fear of daily gun violence.”

Of the injured, 26 were taken to Northshore Highland Park Hospital, said Jim Anthony, a spokesman for Northshore University Health System.

Five others were taken to NorthShore Evanston Hospital, a level one trauma center.

All five people who died in the march were adults, although the age of the sixth victim was not known.

“One person was transported to a local hospital and died at the hospital. I don’t have any additional information on the victim,” Panek said.

Police recovered the gun from the scene of the shooting, said Sergeant Christopher Covelli of the Lake County Major Crimes Task Force.

Covelli said he could not divulge details about where the gun was obtained, but said the shooter appeared to be “shooting from the roof,” though he was not specific on which roof. Police believe the shooting suspect used an unsecured emergency ladder in an alley to gain access to the roof of the business.
