Robert Crimo Considered Attacking Wisconsin Celebration, Authorities Say

Robert Crimo Wisconsin trip revealed.

The suspect in the Highland Park mass shooting considered staging a second attack when he saw a Madison, Wisconsin, area celebration while driving around, authorities say.

They say that Robert Crimo left Highland Park, armed with a Kel-Tec sub-2000 weapon that carried 60 more rounds, and headed for Madison and Middleton. The journey occurred in the hours after Crimo opened fire from a rooftop at the Fourth of July parade in Illinois.

Illinois communities responded by cancelling their Fourth of July festivities, but, when Crimo arrived in Wisconsin, he saw a celebration and considered shooting it up, authorities said.

He changed his mind because he hadn’t researched the area. He left his cell phone in Middleton, where it was later recovered by the FBI, and he went back to Illinois, where he was apprehended to stand charges in the murders of seven people and wounding of many more.

Crimo was disguised as a woman to flee the Highland Park scene.

The Madison information came out in a July 6, 2022, news conference in Illinois. You can watch the here.
