Tragic incident. Hope no Scoopers had anyone directly affected.

Both my daughters were in the parade today with their dance team and marching bands respectively.  But fortunately they were earlier in the parade and had already finished up before this happened.  This is so awful - my thoughts and prayers for the victims and their families.

We were near the end of the parade route so we didn't see anything.  We just saw the parade end suddenly and were told to move to the library right away.  We knew something was very wrong but didn't know right away what.  My older daughter texted us from the bus her band was on to see if we were all ok.

Glad to hear your family is OK.

What a sickening situation.

Sort of yes. They have the vehicle and one of the people of interest. The internet is saying there was more than one person in the vehicle.

I've seen lots of report that there we 3 people in the SUV.  That's 3 MFers that all thought that is was a good idea.

If the initial name on the scanner is true, the guy posted bond two days ago... On charges including bailjumping.

That one video of that very young girl, being carefree and enjoying life and the parade, and the SUV misses her by maybe a foot or two, is chilling.

I thought the same thing when I watched that video and can't imagine how her family felt knowing how close she came to being hit and knowing what the guy in that car did too.  And I know a bunch of kids were in the street at that time trying to pick up candy also :(

One of our closest family friends, and my co -worker for 40 years, grandson was in the band. He was struck and fortunately only suffered a few broken ribs. Was a long night for his family and thankfully he will be ok. Fxxked up world.

There are good people out there and a lady in the crowd stayed with him until Waukesha Sheriff arrived to take him to the hospital in a squad car. More good people than bad people in the world.

So glad to hear that your friend's grandson will be ok.  I'm sure that was very traumatic for him and his family.

Goose, I hope your friend and his grandson are doing as well as possible after such a unspeakable and evil act.  It's gut wrenching just to hear these stories, let alone be directly impacted.

FWIW, NBC News is reporting the suspect/person of interest may have been fleeing from a knife fight. Just f*cking terrible.

We're a family, it's just that a few of you are the uncles that we warn the kids not to talk to.

And yet if his objective was to hurt people in the parade, he was behind everyone... he could easily have made this a lot lot worse. Whatever his goal "monstrous idiot fleeing crime scene" seems more likely than "targeted xmas parade for terror attack" at least based on what I know at this point.

I would think if you were fleeing a previous crime there would be better routes to take than mowing people down at a parade. It did not appear he was being chased and I'm not buying the fleeing theory.  I am happy to see the FBI taking an active role in this investigation.

I appreciate it.  It was a rough night for her.  She's been at the hospital since 6:00 AM yesterday and will be there into the afternoon today.  Thankful that (as far as we know) nobody we know was effected, but I don't think this was one of the better days on the job for her.

A family friend had 2 kids injured.  Both are OK, but lucky.
