A celebratory night in Waukesha, Wisconsin descended into chaos on Sunday, November 21, 2021 when a red S.U.V. stormed past barricades and barreled through the crowd attending the local Holiday Parade, striking dozens, killing at least five, and injuring more than 40 according to current estimates, reports the New York Times. Chief Daniel Thompson of the Waukesha Police Department said on Sunday night that a person of interest was in custody and that there was no further threat. Eyewitnesses described the driver as male, but that was not confirmed by the police. Chief Thompson said shots were fired by the police at the driver. It was unclear what might have motivated the episode. Many of those being treated at local hospitals were children. This was the 58th Christmas parade for Waukesha, an annual event that was canceled last year because of the pandemic.
