Mayhem has found its way to Wisconsin again — an SUV reportedly plowed through a parade and opened fire into the crowd … and there are several people who’ve been injured.
This happened Sunday in Waukesha, WI — about an hour away from Kenosha — where they were having their annual Christmas parade, with scores of folks both participating in the event and watching from the sides of the streets … including lots of families.
According to reports and eyewitness accounts, a vehicle described as a red Ford Escape broke through some barriers that were blocking off a road for the parade’s path, and started barreling down the pavement at full speed … eventually smashing into a group of people.
The car can be seen driving by at a few different points, which was caught on video — and there’s no question … this person was gunning to do damage.
One video shows the SUV zooming by a small child who was playing on the street, and it narrowly missed hitting her as it continued down its path. Eventually, it made contact and ran over a handful of people — including several who are said to be part of a group called the Dancing Grannies and were part of the parade … and many were found lying motionless.
As many as 30 people are reported to have been injured thus far … but it’s unclear if there are any fatalities just yet. Police went after the vehicle, which fled the scene — but not before witnesses claim the driver started firing shots outside their window … part of which was also caught on camera.
The shots could’ve easily came from police here — but it’s just too early to know for sure. Waukesha authorities have warned the public to stay indoors, as this is a fluid situation.
The parade began to get evacuated immediately … and the area is in a sheer panic right now.
