As RedState reported earlier, an SUV drove through a children’s parade this evening in Waukesha, Wisconsin. Initial reports have been sparse, but we are learning more details, including the release of multiple videos showing the moment it happened.
It is abundantly clear that this was no accident.

If you are choosing not to watch the video (and I wouldn’t blame you), what you see is a red SUV driving at a high speed into the center of the parade. The vehicle first hits what looks to be a more sparsely occupied group of marching band members, before accelerating into a much denser group of people, reportedly containing a children’s dance group.
A woman who lives on Main Street says she saw the SUV barrel through a dance team of girls between 9 and 15 years old.
She says the immediate reaction was silence, followed by screaming, running, checking on those injured. @fox6now

Some eyewitnesses and family members are giving updates as to what they saw or are being told happened.
The car that was involved has been located, and a suspect is reportedly in custody. Other reports claim shots rang out, though, that could have been from the police who were chasing the SUV before it hit the crowd.

This is a very fluid situation, and RedState will be here all evening to provide updates as they come in. Lastly, spare a moment to say a prayer for the victims. This is a horrific, tragic situation.
