According to CBS Chicago, Darrell Brooks, 39, has been charged with five counts of murder. According to the police chief, the deaths were "not a terrorist event."

The dead range in age from 52 to 81.

More on Brooks' past via CBS Chicago:

CBS 2 found records for another ongoing case from July, 2020. He was charged with two counts of recklessly endangering safety with use of a dangerous weapon, and possession of a firearm/convicted of felony. He pleaded not guilty in this case.

  • In 2011 Brooks was found guilty on a resisting/obstructing an officer charge.
  • In 2010, he was found guilty on strangulation and suffocation felony charges in Wood County.
  • In 1999, he was found guilty on substantial battery-intend bodily harm, a felony.

Update (1320ET): The suspect in the Waukesha mass murder, Darrell Brooks Jr., was released on an 'inappropriately low' bail on November 11 in an unrelated case, after posting just $1,000 cash bail following charges of Second Degree Recklessly Endangering Safety, Felony Bail Jumping, Battery, Obstructing and Officer and Disorderly Conduct in an existing case against him, according to Milwaukee County DA John T. Chisholm.

Meanwhile, CNN is doing its best to push the narrative that Brooks - a BLM supporter whose social media accounts are riddled with anti-white hate speech, was simply fleeing a crime he had just committed and that slamming into the parade was an accident.

What's more, Brooks was accused in his most recent case of "purposefully" running a woman over with his vehicle.

The section of Main St. worst impacted by the attack will "not be open" before mid-day tomorrow.

The City Council has asked that all items intended for a memorial be placed at Veterans' Park.

Overnight, the city said the scene was "still fluid", but across the country, journalists and ordinary Americans are waiting on the next update after a man drove his Ford Escape through a barricade and onto the parade route of the city's annual Christmas parade, causing immense damage and loss of life.

According to Red State, the NY Post and others, a person of interest has been identified as Darrell Brooks of Milwaukee. described as a "black man with dreadlocks" who was released on cash bail a few days ago.

Audio recorded by local independent journalists off police scanner chatter has police identifying the suspect as a "lighter skin, black male, dreadlocks, possibly no shoes", which matched the description from several outlets.

Info from the Wisconsin Courts page about Brooks shows his cash bond was posted just a few days ago; he is scheduled for a Zoom hearing just a few days before Christmas, according to WI court records.

Tipsters have also stumbled upon a Soundcloud page allegedly belonging to Brooks which included rap tracks with anti-Trump lyrics. They also featured samples of Malcolm X.

The question now, as Laura Loomer noted overnight, is who exactly paid for Brooks' cash bail? Meanwhile, local authorities said the next press conference will be held at 1300 local time on Monday.
