The police say that the suspect, Richard Crimo III, dressed as a woman during the attack to hide his identifiable tattoos and escape the scene.

Police have not yet identified a motive for the shooting, but they believe it was premeditated, and that he had been planning it for weeks.
Kamala Harris made an unannounced visit to Highland Park, just one day after the shooting. But she immediately used the occasion to go political and rail against “assault weapons.” Does she even know what “assault weapons” are? Or is that like the definition of what is a woman — where it’s whatever they say it is, depending on the present narrative? Harris then served up another word salad about taking “this stuff seriously.”
Vice President Kamala Harris just spoke at the scene of the Highland Park mass shooting.
“We have to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are because you have been forced to take this seriously,” she said. pic.twitter.com/vpLSydpJM0

“We’ve got to be smarter as a country in terms of who has access to what — and in particular assault weapons,” Harris said. “We have to take this stuff seriously, as seriously as you are, because you have been forced to take it seriously. The whole nation should understand and have a level of empathy to understand that this can happen anywhere, in any peace-loving community. And we should stand together and speak out about why it’s got to stop.”

She looked at a notecard that said 'Take this seriously and have empathy' and this was the best human impression that she could come up with. https://t.co/bTebYvCo8m
