TERRIFYING new footage shows the moment an SUV sped past families before ploughing into the crowd at the Waukesha Christmas parade, leaving five dead and scores injured.
A mom captured the horrific scene as the rampage unfolded at the festive event in Wisconsin on Sunday.
The woman was at the event with her three-year-old daughter and two sisters when they suddenly started “running for our lives” as gunshots rang out.
“All of a sudden, I hear people screaming and running, I look up and everyone's running and someone's saying ‘he got a gun’ and everyone starts bolting towards the front door of my sister's complex. It was just sheer panic,” the woman, who wishes to remain anonymous, exclusively told The Sun.
She added: “Everyone is just running for their lives. We think that the guy who just drove through the parade has a gun and now he's on the loose, shooting around and it's an active shooter situation now.”
The mother recalls quickly grabbing her daughter so she wouldn’t get hurt and how everyone was running into her sister’s apartment complex for cover.
“Everyone's clutching their children and family members were running into the building trying to squeeze in and someone's yelling ‘he got a gun, he got a gun’,” she said.
“There's children crying, people screaming. It's a complete panic.”
