Nicolas Toledo, 76, didn’t want to attend the Highland Park July 4th parade, but his disabilities required that he be around someone full-time. And the family wasn’t going to skip the parade — even going so far as positioning chairs for a choice viewing spot at midnight the night before.
Mr. Toledo was sitting in his wheelchair along the parade route, between his son and a nephew, when the bullets started flying. “We were all in shock,” Xochil Toledo, his granddaughter, said. “We thought it was part of the parade.”
Then, she said, “We realized our grandfather was hit. We saw blood and everything splattered onto us.”
