Brooks is expected to face five charges of first-degree intentional homicide for the five deaths associated with the Christmas parade. Many other counts are expected as nearly 50 people were hurt when an SUV barreled through the crowds watching the parade on Sunday, Nov. 21
On Sunday, a joyous scene of marching bands and children dancing in Santa hats and waving pompoms gave way in an instant to screams and the sight of crumpled bodies as the SUV sped through barricades and struck dancers, musicians and others in the community of 72,000.
Police identified those killed as Virginia Sorenson, 79; LeAnna Owen, 71; Tamara Durand, 52; Jane Kulich, 52; and Wilhelm Hospel, 81. Sorenson, Owen and Durand were members the Dancing Grannies club, and Hospel helped out with the group.
Another 48 others, including nearly 20 children, were injured in the incident. FOX6 News is monitoring for updates on their conditions.
"Yesterday’s tragic event demonstrated the character of this community," said Waukesha Police Chief Dan Thompson. "When tragedy struck this great city, the community responded."
"It says that we are a community," said Mushir Hassan, Brookfield-Elm Grove Interfaith Network. "We are one community, and we are going to heal together. We grieve together right now, and we will heal together moving forward."
Waukesha is looking for strength and resilience as a long road ahead begins.
