The investigation is still in a

, but for now it has been ruled out that the attack is a terrorist act or retaliation for the not guilty verdict issued last Friday in the trial against Kyle Rittenhouse, sources close to NBC News told to the inquiries.

The SUV

went through the barricades

installed by the authorities as a protective measure, receiving several shots from the security forces to try to stop its driver, and ended up entering the parade at full speed, taking a group of people ahead.

For now there are five dead and more than 40 injured, although it is not ruled out that the figure may rise in the next few hours.

The authorities have not revealed the identities of the victims, nor in what state the injured are.

The Milwaukee Dancing Grannies group, which participated in the parade, said that several of its components died as a result of the impact.

"They were very passionate. Their eyes shone with the joy of being grandmothers. They were the glue [of the group] ... they kept us together," they said in a message posted on their Facebook account.

Angelito Tenorio, a West Allis town councilman running for Wisconsin state treasurer, said he was enjoying the parade with his family when he saw a speeding car appear.

a loud bang," Tenorio said in an interview with CNN, "and after that

we only heard deafening screams from the crowd

, from the people in the parade. And people started running, running away with tears in their eyes, crying. "he added.

Wisconsin Gov. Tony Evers on Monday ordered the flags to be

flown at half mast

in mourning over the tragedy.
