Following an hours-long manhunt, a person of interest connected to the attack, in which six people were shot and numerous others were injured during a shooting at an Independence Day parade in Highland Park, an affluent suburb of Chicago, was apprehended.

After a brief car chase, Robert Crimo III, 22, was apprehended by police, according to Highland Park Police Chief Lou Jogmen.

He was expected to be questioned about his alleged role in the mass shooting, the chief said.

Officials stated that Crimo may be connected to the Monday shooting that left at least six people dead and about two dozen others wounded before fleeing from a rooftop perch.

Authorities reported that five of those killed were adults who were discovered at the scene.

Another person passed away after being taken to a hospital.
