“It sounded like fireworks went off,” said a witness, Richard Kaufmann. “It was a pandemonium. People were covered in blood and tripping over each other.”

While “several of the deceased victims” died on the spot, one succumbed to injuries in hospital, according to authorities.

One of the dead was a Mexican, Roberto Velasco, Mexico’s director for North American affairs, said on Twitter. He added that two other Mexicans were injured in the incident.

About 26 of the injured, aged between eight and 85, were sent to NorthShore University Health Center. All but one had gunshot wounds, said the hospital’s emergency preparedness medical director, Dr Brigham Temple.

White Sox, MLB Decide to Play Game After Parade Shooting

The Chicago White Sox spoke to Major League Baseball on Monday about postponing their game against the Minnesota Twins after a gunman opened fire during an Independence Day parade in suburban Chicago, killing at least six people.

After the team’s talk with MLB and contact with local authorities, the game was played as scheduled. The fireworks display after the game was canceled and a moment of silence was observed before the first pitch of the Twins’ 6-3 victory.

“Our hearts are with the Highland Park community,” the White Sox said in a statement. “The entire Chicago White Sox organization extends our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the innocent victims of today’s horrific shooting and all those affected by this tragedy.”

“Unfortunately, it’s almost daily,” White Sox manager Tony La Russa said of the shooting. “Far too often.
