At least 20 people were injured Sunday in a mass-casualty event as a car plowed into the Christmas Parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, an hour’s drive from the city of Kenosha where Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted last week on murder charges.
A red SUV was seen speeding through police barricades and striking a number of people shortly before 5 p.m.
This was recorded from the City of Waukesha’s Facebook account, which was streaming the parade.

Reports say shots were fired at the popular annual event, and it is not known at this time if the incident had anything to do with the not guilty verdict for Rittenhouse.
Police said the suspect’s vehicle “was recovered” and a “person of interest” was identified but not named, according to WISN-TV. The police chief would not say if that person was in custody.
