Chicago Suburb in 'Unbelievable Shock' After Six Killed During Parade Shooting

Highland Park is the latest community to be attacked by a terrorist

The Chicago suburb of Highland Park was reeling on Tuesday morning, the day after a gunman rained down gunfire from a rooftop overlooking a Fourth of July parade, killing six people and wounding dozens more in the latest outburst of mass gun violence in the United States.

Highland Park Mayor Nancy Rotering told NBC News of the "unbelievable sadness" and "unbelievable shock" that the community of 30,000 was encountering.

"This tragedy should have never arrived at our doorsteps," she said. "As a small town, everybody knows somebody who was effected by this directly and, of course, we are all still reeling."
