Becker News- The Waukesha parade attack suspect, Darrell Edward Brooks, is now believed by law enforcement authorities to have intentionally driven his vehicle into the Christmas parade, killing 5 people and injuring 40 others.
“Darrell Brooks intentionally drove his vehicle into the Christmas parade in Waukesha and is charged with 5 counts of intentional homicide, according to the police,’ Disclose reported.
The police charges contradict earlier media reports that the suspect, Darrell Edward Brooks, a convicted sex offender and radical Black Lives Matter supporter, may have driven into the parade incidentally after fleeing from another crime.
“Officials said … that preliminary investigation showed the driver was not aiming at the marching band or any other parade participant but was speeding through the route to flee an earlier crime, multiple law enforcement sources told ABC News.”
“Authorities spent the overnight hours scouring social media and other digital platforms associated with the person of interest who is now in custody. They have, at least so far, no reason to believe there is any connection to radicalization…” ABC reported. more
