Father of Highland Park Mass Shooting Suspect Due in Court After Grand Jury Indictment

(Waukegan, IL) A Lake County Grand Jury has officially indicted the father of the Highland Park mass shooting suspect. Robert Crimo Jr. was charged back in December with 7 counts of reckless conduct for helping his son, Robert Crimo III, obtain a FOID card a couple years before he allegedly opened fire on a 4th of July parade, killing 7 and wounding several others. A Lake County Grand Jury agreed to move those charges forward on Wednesday. The next step for the 58-year-old is an arraignment later this morning. Robert Crimo III, who is facing well over 100 felony counts, including murder, isn’t due back in court until May.
