UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson is set to resign today following a tenure defined by scandals and intense criticism. He will make a statement in the coming hours, a Downing Street spokesperson told CNN. It is possible that Johnson will remain in office until October when the Conservative party meets for its annual conference. More than 50 ministers have resigned from the government since Tuesday, with many lawmakers furious about the botched handling of the resignation of Johnson’s former deputy chief whip, Chris Pincher, who was accused of groping two men last week. Keir Starmer, the opposition Labour Party leader, responded to reports that Johnson will resign, calling it “good news,” adding “he was always unfit for office.”

The gunman in Monday’s massacre at a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, admitted he carried out the attack, killing seven and wounding dozens of others, prosecutors said in court Wednesday. Authorities said the shooter also “seriously contemplated” committing a second shooting in Madison, Wisconsin, where he drove to after fleeing the parade shooting. Officials revealed the gunman dressed in women’s clothing to conceal his identity and used makeup to cover his tattoos, investigators believe. Separately, a tip from a “hero citizen” thwarted a potential mass shooting planned for a July 4 celebration in Richmond, Virginia, police say. The tipster overheard a conversation that a mass shooting was set to occur at an amphitheater and called that information into police on July 1.
