Then Sen. Ron Johnson stated, "I now invite the Senate to observe a moment of silence in memory of, and to recognize those killed, injured, and forever impacted by the attack on the Waukesha Christmas Parade on November 21st, 2021."

Investigators allege Darrell Brooks Jr., 39, turned into the parade route in Waukesha on Nov. 21 and swerved the vehicle side-to-side without slowing down as he struck dozens of people. Waukesha County District Attorney Susan Opper has filed six counts of first-degree intentional homicide against Brooks.

Brooks' alleged motive remains unknown. Investigators have said he was fleeing the scene of a domestic dispute when he turned into the parade but police were not pursuing him. He was free on $1,000 bail in a Milwaukee County case earlier in November in which he is accused of intentionally striking a woman with his car.
