HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. (CNN) — The man detained in Monday’s deadly shooting at a Fourth of July parade in Illinois will be held without bond, a judge in Illinois’ Lake County said in a hearing Wednesday morning.
Suspect Robert E. Crimo III admitted to investigators that he fired at a crowd at the parade, an assistant state’s attorney alleged.
