A man taken into custody in connection with a deadly attack on a Chicago-area July Fourth celebration that killed six people appears to be an aspiring rapper who posted videos depicting disturbing acts of violence.
Authorities spent frantic hours Monday searching for Robert "Bobby” E. Crimo III and took him into custody shortly before 7 p.m. local time following a short pursuit about five miles away from the shooting. No charges were announced.
Authorities initially said Crimo was 22, but an FBI bulletin and Crimo’s social media said he was 21.
A North Chicago police officer spotted and briefly chased Crimo in nearby Lake Forest and "the subject was taken into custody without incident," Highland Park police Chief Lou Jogmen said. "This doesn’t necessarily mean this is over but we are certainly encouraged that we have a person of interest."
