Months before Highland Park Tragedy, The Shooter Was Kicked Out Of Local Chabad

by CrownHeights.info

Rabbi Yosef Schanowitz, who runs the Chabad House just blocks away from where a man shot two dozen people and killed six on July 4th, got a shock when the police published a photo of the alleged shooter. The man had entered his Chaabad House just months before on Pesach.

“During last Pesach, that person entered the Chabad House. We have an armed security guard sitting in front… I approached him and sternly asked him to leave as I noticed he was not a member of our community,” Rabbi Schanowitz was reported as having told Israel’s Channel 2.

Robert E. Crimo III, 22, who is suspected as being the person behind the July 4th attack in the Chicago suburb, can be distinctly identified by his multiple body and face tattoos.

When the shooting began, four Yeshiva students just one block away were putting on Tefillin with many Jewish local residents. Once shots were fires, they took shelter in the Chabad House with many other community members.

“There is reason to think that the attack was directed against Jews due to the prominent Jewish presence in the area.” Rabbi Schanowitz claimed.

Schanowitz, a clergy man, spent time at the hospital assisting victims and providing support.

Two date, two victims have been identified by the police, including Jacki Sundheim OBM, a Jewish resident and loved member of a local synagogue.
