Highland Park parade mass shooting suspect indicted on 117 counts by Illinois grand jury

A grand jury on Wednesday indicted the man accused of killing seven people at a July 4 parade in a suburb of Chicago on 117 counts, many of which stemmed from dozens of other people who were wounded and were injured.

Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III admitted to the mass shooting at Highland Park in a voluntary statement to authorities this month, officials said. He had previously been charged with seven counts of first-degree murder.

He now faces 21 counts of first-degree murder, according to the Lake County Attorney’s Office. There are three first-degree murder charges per victim.

The indictment also charges him with 48 counts of attempted murder and 48 counts of aggravated assault with a firearm for each person wounded by a bullet or shrapnel.

Crimo is scheduled to appear for his indictment next week. Court records show that he is represented by a public defender and does not name a lawyer.

Authorities identified those killed in the shooting as Katherine Goldstein, 64; Irina McCarthy, 35; Kevin McCarthy, 37; Jacquelyn Sundheim, 63; Stephen Strauss, 88; Nicolas Toledo-Zaragoza, 78; and Eduardo Uvaldo, 69.

Kevin and Irina McCarthy were at the parade with their 2-year-old son, Aiden, who was physically unharmed. That’s what the boy’s grandfather, Michael Levberg, said Chicago Sun Times that Kevin McCarthy was protecting Aiden when he died.

“He had Aiden under his body when he was shot at,” Levberg said.
