A person is in custody as at least five people are dead and more than 40 injured after someone driving a red SUV crashed through a barrier and slammed into participants and spectators at the annual Waukesha Christmas parade in Wisconsin last night.
In a Facebook post, the Milwaukee Dancing Grannies, which describes itself as "group of grannies that meet once a week to practice routines for summer and winter parades," says its members are among the dead and injured.
Waukesha police Chief Daniel Thompson said a person of interest is in custody but stressed the investigation is "very active."
The city's Fire Chief Steven Howard said his department transported at least 11 adults and 12 children to six area hospitals. He said some of the fatalities are children. A press conference is expected to be held around 1pm Iowa time today.
Was this deliberate or something else? If it was deliberate, what was the motive?
