Robert Crimo, a person of interest connected to the tragic shooting on Monday in Highland Park, Illinois, has been arrested.

According to a press release from the city, sixteen individuals were sent to the hospital for their injuries, while other persons proceeded to surround hospitals on their own.

After being recognized by a North Chicago police officer at around 6:30 p.m., Crimo was brought into custody. After a brief chase, Crimo was detained without incident in neighboring Lake Forest after being stopped.

Crimo, who is still listed as a "person of interest," was reportedly escorted to the Highland Park Police Department for interrogation, according to the police.

In a statement made earlier on Monday evening, the FBI stated that Crimo "should be considered armed and dangerous" and announced a reward for information leading to his capture.

Suspect: Does Robert Crimo Have Any Siblings?

According to officials, Robert "Bobby" E. Crimo III was arrested by police "without incident" after being seen operating a vehicle that matched the description on an FBI wanted poster.

People want to know about his siblings and personal information. However, as Crimo's Facebook and Instagram accounts were deleted, there is less information available on him.

Robert Crimo is the son of Bob Crimo. Bob Crimo, the father of the alleged Chicago July 4 parade gunman, campaigned for mayor of Highland Park in 2019.

Bob was depicted in front of the City of Highland Park office with the hashtag "a person for the people" in a Facebook post from November 28, 2018:

Bob Crimo, however, lost the mayoral election. Police assert that the at least six fatalities and 31 reported injuries on Monday are attributable to his 22-year-old son, also known as Awake the Rapper on social media.
