Man charged with intentional homicide for ramming SUV into US city parade

A 39-year-old man has been charged with 5 counts of first-degree intentional homicide for driving into a holiday parade in Waukesha, a city in the US state of Wisconsin, which killed 5 people and injured over 40 others.

According to the city police, suspect Darrell Brooks from Milwaukee has a significant criminal history.

Darrell had been free on a $1,000 bail in a criminal case previously, in which he was accused of running over the mother of his child in the parking lot of a Milwaukee gas station.

Talking to the media, Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson said the victims were aged between 52 to 81, and there were 18 children, aged from 3 to 16, among those injured.

Of the 18 injured children, 10 were in the intensive care units and 6 were in critical condition, Thompson added.

The police said preliminary investigation provided no evidence that the incident had terror links.

The incident took place at around 4.30 p.m. on Sunday in Waukesha, part of the Milwaukee metropolitan area, when an SUV broke through the barriers and ran into the roadway where the Christmas parade was taking place, according to local media reports.

A smartphone video captured the SUV running through the crowd, hitting pedestrians, and accelerating throughout the route.
