U.S. President Joe Biden will host a barbecue for military families for the 4th of July on Monday, which is the nation’s Independence Day.
The president is also expected to deliver remarks at the event.
This comes as tragedy struck in Illinois earlier in the day. Six people are dead and 24 have been sent to hospital after a shooting at a Fourth of July parade in the Chicago-area suburb of Highland Park, Ill., according to local officials. Police are actively looking for the shooter.
At a press conference on Monday, law enforcement officials told media that the shooting appears “completely random” and it appears the shooter was on a roof with a rifle, which an official from the Lake County Sheriff’s Department says has been recovered.
