Darrell Brooks, the suspect in the Waukesha massacre who has been arrested and charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide after driving his car into a Christmas parade on Sunday evening in that small Wisconsin town, was caught on Ring security camera footage.
A homeowner who lives near the site of the tragedy said that their Ring camera shows Brooks approaching their home prior to his arrest to ask for help calling an Uber, according to Fox News.
Daniel Rider shared these clips with NBC News, and they were reportedly from about 20 minutes after Brooks drove his car into the crowd of children, grandmothers, and onlookers.
The footage shows a man who appears to be Brooks saying that he is "homeless," and asking for help. "Hey, I called an Uber and I'm supposed to be waiting for it over here but I don't know when it's coming. Can you call it for me please?" the man asks.
The homeowner did allow the man in to use his phone. But then, "All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I'm getting extra nervous," Rider said, according to reports.
Rider asked Brooks to leave, which he did, though he came back, claiming that he's left his ID inside Rider's home.
Brooks is accused of having driven his car intentionally into a Christmas parade, killing five people and injuring many more.
Brooks was released on Nov. 11 2021 after having posted what has beed called an "inappropriately low" bail of $1,000 in the domestic violence case against him, which is still very much ongoing, according to the Milwaukee County DA office.
"At 4:39 pm on Sunday, November 21, 2021, a lone subject intentionally drove his maroon SUV through barricades into a crowd of people celebrating the Christmas parade, which resulted in killing 5 people, and injuring 48 additional individuals... 2 of the 48 are children, and are in critical condition," police said.
"When the suspect was driving through and into the crowd one officer did discharge his firearm and fired shots at the suspect to stop the threat, but due to the amount of people, had to stop... and did not fire any additional stop... No one was injured as a result of him firing... his firearm." The officer is now on administrative leave, as per department protocol.
Police said that authorities "are confident he acted alone. There is no evidence that this is a terrorist incident."
