The details are sketchy right now, but just minutes ago, someone plowed a vehicle through a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, at a very high speed. They escaped leaving the street filled with victims.
Here is the vehicle speeding down the road past one march unit.

Here is the vehicle blasting through barriers and making its escape. It sounds like gunshots. Some people are claiming the driver was shooting, others that police were shooting at the car. To me, it looks like the cop in the safety vest at the left of the screen fires the shots.

Waukesha police are calling this a “Mass Casualty Incident” 12+ police units and 12+ fire trucks responding.
People there say police are also transporting victims in police cars. @kaaaaayleen shared this pic of the scene from above and one just before car drove into parade. pic.twitter.com/2e6jS8Bqjp

The fact that it takes place in a heavily GOP city in Wisconsin, only two days after the Rittenhouse acquittal, is generating a lot of speculation that I think will be proven groundless, when this is all sorted out.
