    Police nabbed the man suspected of gunning down six parade goers and wounding dozens more at a suburban Chicago Fourth of July celebration, reportedly pulling him over at an intersection in nearby Lake Forest after a massive manhunt.

    The suspect was caught five miles north of Highland Park, where he is believed to have opened fire on a parade from a nearby rooftop. The massacre threw the affluent Chicago suburb into chaos and carnage, with dozens wounded in addition to the dead.

    "This was very random, very intentional and a very sad day," Sgt. Christopher Covelli, of the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, during a press update.

    The Daily Wire does not name mass shooting suspects once they are in custody, as part of a policy aimed at depriving them of the notoriety they often crave.

    Covelli said the gunman appeared to have taken up up a sniper position. Police recovered a high-powered rifle from the scene.

    The conditions of the injured ranged from serious to critical. Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering said the shooting has "terrorized" the city of 30,000.

    "Firearm evidence was found on the rooftop of a nearby business, police commander Chris O'Neill said. The shooter used a ladder attached to the building on a wall in an alley to access the roof, said Christopher Covelli, spokesperson for the Lake County Major Crime Task Force," CNN reported.

    According to one source, the suspect's father is a former Highland Park mayoral candidate.

    Illinois Governor JB Pritzker of Illinois expressed horror at the shooting in a statement Monday.

    "There are no words for the kind of monster who lies in wait and fires into a crowd of families with children celebrating a holiday with their community," he said. "There are no words for the kind of evil that robs our neighbors of their hopes, their dreams, their futures."

    The world-famous concert venue Ravinia is located in Highland Park, a city which has a sizable Jewish population and is situated roughly 30 miles north of Chicago.
