Illinois officials say the man accused of killing seven people during a Fourth of July parade had somehow managed to get around the state’s “red flag” gun laws. 

The man suspected of killing seven people and wounding dozens of others at a Fourth of July parade in Illinois is expected to make his first court appearance today. The alleged shooter faces seven counts of first-degree murder. A conviction would result in a sentence of life in prison without parole, officials said. The suspect, according to authorities, opened fire from a building rooftop using a rifle similar to an AR-15 as the parade got underway on Monday. The suspect is believed to have planned the attack for weeks, and the rifle used appears to have been purchased legally in Illinois, officials said. However, information released by state and local police shows the suspect previously required officer intervention over threats of violence and mental health concerns — raising questions about how he was able to legally obtain firearms.
