Prosecutors say a sixth person, a child, has died and additional charges are pending.

Darrell Brooks Jr. was charged with five counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the crash Sunday in Waukesha, a Milwaukee suburb.

He made his initial court appearance Tuesday.

The city’s livestream video and bystander video captured the chaotic scene when an SUV sped along the parade route and then into the crowd.

Authorities say 62 people were injured, including many children. Several remain in critical condition.

Conviction on first-degree intentional homicide carries a mandatory life sentence.

The court commissioner set bail at $5 million.
