Chicagoland police hunting for shooter who opened fire on parade

Police in Illinois say a gunman who opened fire on a July 4 parade in Chicago suburb Highland Park is still on the loose and considered an active shooter.

It is unclear whether the shooter is still in the area or still posing a threat, but police advise the public to stay away from the area.

Video from the scene shows parade participants fleeing as gunshots ring out. Others watching the parade are slower to realize what is happening.

Parades in some other nearby suburbs have been canceled.

Authorities have not said if there are any casualties.
