Reports say the red SUV ran over barricades and into a crowd attending a Christmas parade in Waukesha, WI. Reports say five were killed and as many as 40 were injured.
The small town's demographics are 89.9 percent white and 3.4 percent black with a few Asians and non-White Hispanics.
The media stopped short of calling the incident a hate crime or suggesting it was racially motivated. The media did not associate Brooks with BLM or antifa. He was not referred to as a black supremacist or black nationalist.
Waukesha is a suburb of Milwaukee and is located about 30 miles from Kenosha.
