Officials will hold a press conference to speak about Monday’s mass shooting in Highland Park.
The suspect, Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III, 21, dressed as a woman in order to evade detection, according to Chris Covelli, a spokesman with the Lake County Major Crime Task Force said Tuesday morning. After firing more than 70 rounds, Crimo exited the roof, dropped the rifle, slipped into the crowd and went to his mother’s house, he said.
The gun that was used in the mass shooting was purchased legally in Illinois, authorities and Highland Park mayor Nancy Rotering told the Tribune Tuesday morning.
The press conference is scheduled to begin at 3 p.m.
