The gunman suspected of opening fire with a “high-powered rifle” from a rooftop 

Robert E. “Bobby” Crimo III, 22, was “taken into custody without incident” on Monday at 6:45 p.m. in Lake Forest, according to a statement released by the Highland Park police. 

After being seen by a police officer in North Chicago and leading officers on a brief pursuit, he was taken into custody. 

Crimo was escorted to the Highland Park police station, police Chief Lou Jogmen said. 

According to Covelli, who stated that the shooter fired from a rooftop, the perpetrator used “a high-powered weapon” that has been located after the incident. 

He described the crime as “extremely random, quite intentional.” .

It appeared that the gunman had used an “unsecured” ladder to climb to the rooftop, Covelli said.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives is reportedly investigating the rifle’s ownership history, according to the authorities.
