A car drove through the crowd at a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, while gunshots were reportedly fired out of the car window Sunday evening.
The videos circulating online after 5 p.m. Sunday showed the vehicle, appearing to be a red Ford Escape, plowing through the participants of the parade. Gunshot sounds emanating from the car can be heard.

“As we were walking back in between the buildings that we saw an SUV crossover, just put the pedal to the metal and just zooming full speed along the parade route. And then we heard a loud bang, and just deafening cries and screams from people who were struck by the vehicle,” Angelito Tenorio, an eyewitness of the incident, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
“And then, and then we saw people running away or stopping crying, and there, there are people on the ground who looked like they’d been hit by the vehicle,” Tenorio added. (RELATED: Mud Racing Vehicle Plows Into Crowd, Killing 1, Injuring 7)
Right in front of my family, this man drives through the parade hitting as many people as possible while shooting out the window. He ran over several elderly women who were dancing in the parade and many others please pray for everyone in Waukesha
