Six people were killed and 21 injured in a shooting near Chicago (United States). A suspect has been arrested.

After a chase with police, who had spotted a reported vehicle, a suspect in the Monday, July 4 shooting near Chicago has been arrested. The police do not say that it is indeed the killer, but that it is a central figure in the case. There was only one shooter, his weapon was found. A total of six people were killed and 21 injured. It seems that the police have found the main suspect.

It is about a young white man, 21 years old, a former rapper, who had published on social networks and on the internet rather enigmatic messages and even a drawing representing a man armed with an assault rifle in train to kill other people. You should know that this is the 308th mass murder in the United States since the beginning of the year. A terrible daily life that the Americans are unable to contain, while the Republicans are blocking any major reform, specifies the journalist from France Télévisions, Loïc de la Mornais.
