(FOX NEWS) – Waukesha, Wisconsin Police Chief Daniel Thompson confirmed in a press conference Sunday that a red SUV drove through Christmas parade barricades and struck at least 20 individuals, including children.

Thompson said an officer who has been on the force for just over six years opened fire on the vehicle. A person of interest is currently in custody but Thompson stressed that the investigation is “very active.”

Thompson does not believe the suspect ever opened fire.

Some of the fatalities are children, Thompson said, and the identities won’t be revealed until families are notified.

Waukesha Fire Chief Steven Howard said his department transported 11 adults and 12 children to six area hospitals.
