Chicago shooting detainee faces life in prison
International Business News – According to Taiwan’s “Central News Agency” report, Illinois Attorney Reinhardt announced on the 5th local time that he was indicting Robert Cremer III, the suspect in the “Independence Day” parade shooting incident that occurred on the 4th, on seven counts of first-degree murder.
Reinhardt said additional prosecutions could be made in the future. He also said that if Robert Cremer III is convicted of all seven counts, he will be sentenced to life in prison without parole.
According to the Russian Satellite News Agency Washington, Mayor Rothlin of Highland Park, Illinois, in the central United States, said in an interview with NBC Television that the rifle the suspect used to shoot was legally purchased, the suspect has also not been placed on a law enforcement “blacklist” before.
“I don’t know where the rifle came from, but I do know that the rifle was purchased legally,” Rothling said.
Rotling had previously ordered a ban on possession of “assault weapons” in Highland Park, the report said.
According to the investigation, the gunman opened fire on the roof and fled the crime scene before police arrived. Hours after police declared a manhunt for the suspect as a result of the attack, Robert Cremo III was arrested.
“I don’t think he was on the police’s ‘blacklist’ before,” Rothlin said, noting that as a child, Robert Cremer III was a member of the Boy Scouts he led. “He was just a little boy,” she said.
