A grand jury on Wednesday indicted the man accused of killing seven people at a Fourth of July parade in a Chicago suburb on 117 charges, many of which stem from the dozens of other people who were wounded and injured.

Robert “Bobby” E. Crimo III admitted to the mass shooting in Highland Park in a voluntary statement to authorities this month, officials said. He had previously been charged with seven counts of first-degree murder.

He is now charged with 21 counts of first-degree murder, according to the Lake County State’s Attorney’s Office. There are three first-degree murder charges per victim.

The indictment also charges him with 48 counts of attempted murder and 48 counts of aggravated battery with a firearm for every person who was wounded by a bullet or shrapnel.

Crimo is scheduled to appear for his arraignment next week. Court records indicate he is represented by a public defender and do not name an attorney.

Authorities identified those killed in the shooting as Katherine Goldstein, 64; Irina McCarthy, 35; Kevin McCarthy, 37; Jacquelyn Sundheim, 63; Stephen Straus, 88; Nicolas Toledo-Zaragoza, 78; and Eduardo Uvaldo, 69.

Kevin and Irina McCarthy were at the parade with their 2-year-old son, Aiden, who was physically unharmed. The boy’s grandfather Michael Levberg told the Chicago Sun-Times that Kevin McCarthy was shielding Aiden when he died.

“He had Aiden under his body when he was shot,” Levberg said.
