Police confirmed tonight that several people died and more than twenty were injured in the attack perpetrated this afternoon in the town of Waukesha, in Wisconsin (USA), where a car ran into the participants in a parade and ran over many of them.
The police chief, Dan Phillips, confirmed that several of those hit in this incident were children and also announced that there were “several” deaths, although he did not want to give more details because, as he explained, they are notifying the victims’ families of the deaths. The police confirmed that there is a person detained but did not give further details because the investigation is still open.
The police chief also said that the vehicle with which this attack was perpetrated has been recovered, a red SUV.
The event occurred in the afternoon in the town of Waukesha, when a vehicle jumped through the police control and rushed towards the people who participated in this parade.
