An eight-year-old boy has now died from his injuries after being hit by the red SUV driven by Darrel Brooks when he attacked a Christmas parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday.
As Fox News reports:
An 8-year-old child who has become the sixth person to have died in the Waukesha Christmas parade attack is being remembered by the baseball team he was marching with as a “sweet, talented boy who was a joy to coach.”
Jackson Sparks, who underwent brain surgery on Sunday night, died from his injuries on Tuesday, according to a GoFundMe page set up for his family. Jackson and his 12-year-old brother, Tucker, who was marching alongside him, were one of three sets of siblings to have been injured in the attack.
“This afternoon, our dear Jackson has sadly succumbed to his injuries and passed away,” read a post on the page, adding that “Tucker, by the grace of God is miraculously recovering from his injuries and will be discharged home.”
The page earlier described the siblings’ parents, Aaron and Sheri, as “people of faith” and that Tucker “sustained road rash and a fractured skull.”
Brooks currently faces five counts of first-degree intentional homicide and is facing a mandatory life sentence if convicted.
