Chicago shooting suspect bragged ‘there is no past or future’ in sickening video

A chilling video message from the suspected Highland Park shooter who gunned innocent people down during an American Independence Parade has been revealed.

A shooter unleashed a hail of bullets during Fourth of July celebrations in Highland Park, Chicago, overnight, just minutes after they started, leaving six people dead and around 30 injured.

There was chaos as terrified people fled the scene, running for cover and abandoning items they had brought with them as they attempted to avoid being shot.

The suspect has been arrested and named as 22-year-old Robert ‘Bobby’ Crimo III, who is said to have opened fire from the roof of what was an outdoor outfitting store.

And Twitter sleuths have managed to find and upload a video created by the suspect – and it contains a chilling, and sobering message.

The one minute and 38 seconds long video features Crimo in various odd poses and places, with a strange symbol constantly flashing over the top of the video.

The symbol is a version of a unicursal hexagram, commonly used in the occult world or by some heavy metal bands.

In it, he states: “Like a sleepwalker, I am breaking through no matter what, like a sleepwalker, unable to stop and think.

“My actions will be valiant and my thought is unnecessary.

“I know what I have to do – I know what's in it, not only for me, but for everyone else.

“Where am I going? I don't know. I don't care. There is no past or future just the now it is more abstract than I could ever imagine.

“I can feel the atmosphere pushing me in it's unstoppable, like a wave pulling me under. I can't breathe without it.”

The video was on his YouTube channel, which has now been pulled by the video streaming service for “violating YouTube's Community Guidelines”.

He continued: "I can't see or hear what I don't want. I need to leave now. I need to just do it. It is my destiny. Everything has led up to this. Nothing can stop me – not even myself.

"Is there a such thing as free will or has this been planned out like a cosmic recipe is what I've been waiting for in the back of my head ready to be awakened to what I was sent here to do?

"Like a sleepwalker, walking steady with my head held high, like a sleepwalker walking blindly into the night.”

It was also posted on the suspected gunman's Twitter account under the username @awake_rip.

This has now been suspended by the social media site.

After the shooting incident, US President Joe Biden took to social media to share his condolences as he continued to vow to take on the "epidemic" which is gun violence.

The 79-year-old said: "Jill and I are shocked by the senseless gun violence that has yet again brought grief to an American community this Independence Day."
