Thompson said they will charge Brooks with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide. Brooks could face more charges.
Thompson also confirmed Brooks “was involved in a ‘domestic disturbance'” before he allegedly drove through the crowd:
“We have information that the suspect prior to the incident was involved in a domestic disturbance which was just minutes prior and the suspect left that scene just prior to our arrival to that domestic disturbance,” the chief said.
“When the suspect was driving through and into the crowd, one officer did discharge his firearm and fire shots at the suspect to stop the threat but due to the amount of people, had to stop, stop and fire — not fire any other additional shots,” he continued.
Thompson added that the officer has been put on administrative leave.
He noted that there is “no evidence” that this is a terrorist incident.
Corporate Media does not want you to talk about the Christmas Parade Attack in Waukesha.
They want you to think that Darrell Brooks Jr was just “fleeing a knife fight” and that killing 5 and injuring 40+ was an accident
