Multiple people are feared dead after a reported shooting at a 4th of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois, on Monday.
The number of victims remains unclear. Police have reportedly requested a canine unit to assist in finding the suspect. The suspect remains at large.
Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker stated to WGN that he believes there are at least nine shooting victims. The outlet reported that at least two were killed.
The Lake County Sheriff's Office, where Highland Park is located, confirmed that a shooting had occurred and urged people to stay out of the area. The sheriff's office did not confirm the number of victims, however.
The Highland Park Police Department confirmed they are responding to an "active situation" and will soon release a statement to Fox News Digitial. The sheriff's office did not immediately respond to requests for comment from Fox.
