A man in his 30s who killed dozens of people in a car crash into a Christmas parade in Wisconsin, USA, has been found to have committed the crime while fleeing after a report of domestic violence was received.

According to the New York Times (NYT) and the Associated Press on the 22nd (local time), the suspect, who was arrested for driving his SUV (sport utility vehicle) in the middle of a Christmas march at the Milwaukee suburban Walkie Show the day before, is Darrell Brooks Jr. (39). It was identified as a man named

Walkieshaw Police said at a briefing on the same day that Brooks committed the crime by driving an SUV after he fled the scene of domestic violence.

Walkieshaw Police Commissioner Dan Thompson said: “We have received reports of domestic violence involving knives (Brooks involved),” he said.

Brooks had previously been released on $1,000 bail after being charged with driving a car and injuring the woman while arguing with her mother at a gas station in Milwaukee, US media reported.

On the 5th, he was additionally indicted on charges of obstructing the execution of official duties, escaping without permission while on bail, and assault.

Police charged Brooks with five counts, including first-degree murder, in connection with the Christmas Parade rush.

Police said there was no evidence to suggest that the incident was a terrorist act. It appears that Brooks did not appear to have known any of the parade participants, Thompson said.

At least five people were killed and more than 40 injured in the incident, police said. Most of the critically injured are children.

The deaths were four women between the ages of 52 and 79 and a man aged 81.

White House press secretary Jen Saki said at a briefing that President Joe Biden was regularly informed about the incident.
