A RESIDENT says he invited the rapper accused of killing five people at a Christmas parade into his home and made him a sandwich.
Darrell Brooks, 39, is facing five counts of intentional homicide following the carnage in Waukesha, Wisconsin on Sunday that left at least five dead and more than 40 injured.
Ring doorbell footage, filmed minutes after the rampage, shows a shivering Brooks standing on Daniel Rider's porch before he was arrested, NBC News reports.
Daniel's house is located around half a mile from the Christmas parade route.
In the video, Brooks knocks on the door and says: “I called an Uber and I’m supposed to be waiting for it over here, but I don’t know when it’s coming.
“Can you call it for me please? I’m homeless.”
Daniel told NBC that he invited Brooks inside, made him a sandwich, gave him a jacket, and let him use his phone.
He said that he was watching football, adding he had no idea what happened at the parade.
Daniel ordered Brooks to leave before the 39-year-old started banging on the door, claiming that he had left his ID.
He added: “All of a sudden, I look outside my street and I see a few cop cars drive by and I’m getting extra nervous.”

Moments later, cops then swooped on the property where they instructed Brooks to put his hands in the air.
Brooks says: “Whoa, whoa, whoa” as he appears to follow the cops’ orders.
It’s not known if the rapper was arrested on Rider’s property.
Cops opened fire on the Ford SUV as it plowed through a barrier and sped off on November 21.
Officers later swooped at an address in Milwaukee where the car was parked in the driveway.
The front of the vehicle was crumpled right up to the windscreen with its bumper and license plate hanging off.
Brooks was detained there and he reportedly complained of a sore shoulder as he was taken into custody. He is set to be charged.
In a video on his YouTube channel, the same car that plowed into the parade appears to have been used.
The first three letters on the license plate ADP and the vehicle's description are the same as reportedly heard on the police scanner.
The playlist on his YouTube channel – which has been taken down – includes the song Gon Kill U.
One of the rapper's songs includes the lyrics: "They gonna need a cleaner for the s*** we did, all my killers Gacey where them bodies hid."
Another of his songs 'X' contains the lyrics "f*** Donald Trump" and "f*** the pigs".
He posted a video on one of his Twitter accounts ranting about a speech made by former President Barack Obama, which he called "a crock of b******".
'BODIES THROWN AROUND'
Brooks is also a convicted sex offender. He has an open arrest warrant dating from 2016 in Nevada for failing to obey sexual offenders laws.
Witnesses said they heard screams and saw bodies being “thrown around” by the car.
Angela O'Boyle, whose apartment overlooked the parade in the Milwaukee suburb, told CNN: "All I heard was screaming and then people yelling out their children's names".
She described how she “saw the car come and plow into the band that was just pass my balcony at that point” (sic).
Brayden Kowalski, a 19-year-old witness, told Fox News he was with his family when he saw bodies being thrown around by the car.
He said: "[The driver is] just blowing through people, kind of just dinging a lot of people, bodies flying everywhere.”
Corey Montiho, Waukesha school district board member, told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: "There were pompoms and shoes and spilled hot chocolate everywhere.
"I had to go from one crumpled body to the other to find my daughter. My wife and two daughters were almost hit."
A witness told the New York Times that they believed the driver of the SUV was intentionally trying to hit parade participants, claiming that the driver was steering towards people.
Tyle Kotlark, 28, said: "He was going from side to side, targeting people. The car bombed through. He was flying through there going intentionally from left to right."
Harrowing images have since emerged following the destruction, including one of a broken stroller left on the street.
Other pictures show chairs used by spectators to watch the parade knocked down, and clothing and bags also appear to have been abandoned in the carnage.
Members of the “Dancing Grannies” club were among those killed.
Virginia Sorenson, 79, LeAnna Owen, 71, Tamara Durand, 52, were part of the group.
Jane Kulich, 52, was a Citizens Bank employee who was killed while walking alongside the company’s parade float.
Wilhelm Hospel, 81, was the husband of one of the members of the MDG.
According to his devastated brother Theodore, Wilhelm passed away after suffering from internal bleeding and injuries to his pelvis.
Theodore told the New York Post that months before the tragedy Wilhelm asked: “Who do you think is going to be the first one to go?”.
