Robert "Bobby" Crimo III, a 21-year-old, is the suspect who opened fire on celebrants in a Chicago suburb on American Independence Day.

Crimo, who murdered six people and wounded nearly 40 others, is also known as a musician named "Awake the Rapper".



According to a report by NBC, the shooter posted a series of posts on social media that dealt with mass shootings, as well as some of his songs.

The latest video he uploaded to his YouTube account shows him at the end of a school shooting incident, wrapped in a United States flag.

After the shooting, his network account was blocked.

Apparently, he was also active in several groups and forums, which also dealt with graphic depictions of violent death.

At one point, his Spotify account reached more than a hundred thousand listeners a month.

Among the victims of the shooting yesterday were also Jews.

Jackie Sondheim, a member of the North Shore Congregation Israel Synagogue in Glencore, is one of six murdered in Highland Park, according to the synagogue.

"There are no words to describe the depth of our grief over Jackie's death," the synagogue said.

She worked at the conference house as an events coordinator and teacher.



The shooting occurred during a July 4 parade.

The gala procession began at 10 a.m., United States time, and shooting there reportedly began just 10 minutes later.

One eyewitness told local media that he noticed a shooter opening fire at the crowd from the roof of a store, and that he heard dozens of shots.
