A Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin, turned into a scene of deadly horror when a red SUV plowed into a crowd on the city’s Main Street late Sunday.
At least five people were killed and more than 40 others were injured, according to officials in the suburban Milwaukee city.
Those numbers may change as new information comes to light, they said.
Darrell Brooks, 39, from Wisconsin, was identified as a person of interest taken into custody Sunday night and is being questioned, five law enforcement officials told NBC News.
Brooks has not been charged with any crime in connection with the incident and police have not named him a suspect.
Brooks was involved in a domestic stabbing incident before the crash, but it’s not clear who the victim was, law enforcement sources told NBC News.
He had posted a $1,000 cash bond on Nov. 11, the court records show.
The exact circumstances surrounding the incident and what may have motivated it were not yet clear.
Brooks had posted bail earlier this month in a domestic abuse case, court records show.
He’s charged with resisting or obstructing an officer, bail jumping recklessly, endangering safety, disorderly conduct and battery, the records show.
He appeared in court on Nov. 12 and is scheduled for another hearing next month.
