2:32 p.m. Pacific time – Brooks’ bond has just been set at $ 5 million. There are also reports now that a 6th person, a child, has died from injuries sustained during the parade.
The man who cops say is responsible for driving his SUV through a Wisconsin Christmas parade, killing 5 people and injuring dozens more has just been charged … and is on his way to appear in court for the first time.
According to documents released on Tuesday, Darrell Brooks Jr. was struck with 5 counts of intentional first degree homicide – one count for each person killed. The documents tell how Brooks ignored attempts by civilians and police to stop his vehicle.
Not only that, officers claim that there were several times when Brooks had the opportunity to leave the parade route and he stayed inside… increasing his speed and mowing down people.
In total there were at least 62 injured by Brooks … the 5 victims were all adults, but we do know that children were among the injured.
As we have reported, the arrest of Brooks was captured on doorbell surveillance shortly after the massacre. He had asked the owners to use a phone, saying he was waiting for an Uber… but the cops were quick to catch up with him.
Brooks, who had a very small-scale rap career, showcased the same vehicle he used in the attack in one of his videos.
