HIGHLAND PARK, Ill. – A Detroit native was attending the Highland Park Fourth of July parade on Monday and was one of the many that were injured during the shooting.
Tim Wilson told Local 4 that he and his daughter heard shots and that he was hit by shrapnel.
“I felt the blood coming down, but it probably looked a lot worse than it was,” said Wilson.
Another family whose in-laws are from West Bloomfield said they could experience the chaos from their Highland Park home.
“My 6-year-old niece came running to my home a few blocks away,” said Jackie Meyer, who lives blocks from the shooting. “(My niece) said she was running from the man with all the fireworks.”
