Police reveal past incidents with suspected Highland Park gunman.

The Highland Park, Illinois, shooting suspect, Robert E. Crimo III, has been charged with seven counts of first-degree murder, Lake County State’s Attorney Eric Rinehart announced.

Rinehart said he anticipates more charges in the future.

“We anticipate dozens of more charges centering around each of the victims,” he said in a news conference.

If Crimo is convicted on these seven charges, it will lead to a mandatory life sentence without the possibility of parole, Rinehart said. The official said that they will ask the judge tomorrow to hold Crimo “without the possibility of bail.”

“In the courtroom, we will seek the maximum sentence against this offender. Not because we seek vengeance, but because justice and the healing process demand it,” Rinehart said.

At least seven people were killed in the Monday shooting and dozens were injured.
