Highland Park is the hometown of singer/songwriter Richard Marx and The Marvelous Ms. Maisel star, Rachel Brosnahan. Both were horrified by yesterday’s tragedy and took to Twitter to express their love and compassion for Highland Park and its victims.

The “Something So Strong,” singer wrote that he is, “heartbroken,” and “angry.”

Rachel Brosnahan took to Twitter to address the tragic shooting that took place during a Fourth of July parade in Highland Park, Illinois. “I grew up in Highland Park and this parade is a highlight of the year for so many families. I’m sick to my stomach every time news like this comes out, but I don’t wish the pit in your stomach as you call your family and friends to make sure everyone is okay on anyone.”

In her Instagram stories, Brosnahan shared more. “I grew up in Highland Park and spent nearly every day after school and every weekend being stupid with friends directly across from where today’s shooting occurred. I never once considered that I[‘d] be unsafe there,” she wrote.
