As more details are released about the tragedy in Waukesha this Sunday, a chilling video has been released showing the moments after a Red SUV ran through a crowd of spectators.  WATCH:


At a 9PM press conference, police confirmed that there were multiple fatalities, some of which are children.

Tragedy struck the city of Waukesha, Wisconsin Sunday night when a red SUV ran in to a crowd of parade goers, injuring dozens and killing an unreported number of people.  Police have identified the three suspects as either Black or Arab.  There is no certain connection to any political cause or ideology at this time.  The driver reportedly ran in to parade participants known as the “dancing grannies” as well as a children’s dance group before veering off in to the crowd of spectators.


Politicians and reporters have called on people to avoid politicizing the tragic event.  Retired news anchor Dan Harland had this to say:


Angelito Tenorio, a West Allis Alderman, offered an eyewitness account of the disturbing events in Waukesha, saying

“As we were walking back in between the buildings that we saw an SUV crossover, just put the pedal to the metal and just zooming full speed along the parade route. And then we heard a loud bang, and just deafening cries and screams from people who are struck by the vehicle,”

A family reunification center has been set up at Waukesha’s public transit center at  212 E. St. Paul Avenue.

This is a developing story.
