More than 100 people were arrested, Chicago Police Supt. David Brown said at a news conference Monday morning alongside Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
It appeared as though the looting initially began in the city's Loop, but spread to multiple Chicago neighborhoods in the overnight hours, with reports of businesses struck in River North, Streeterville, Lincoln Park, the Gold Coast and the South Loop as well.
The Chicago Transit Authority shut down all train and bus service downtown "at the request of public safety officials," the CTA said. Buses were not running in the area bounded by Fullerton, Cermak and Ashland Avenue for hours, the CTA said, with all train service temporarily suspended as well.
The bridges over the Chicago River were lifted at around 4:30 a.m., preventing further entry into and exit from the downtown area.
Illinois State Police confirmed at around 5 a.m. that Chicago police asked for assistance in blocking all expressway ramps going in and out of the city's Loop: from Cermak to I-55, I-94 from Roosevelt to Division and Congress Parkway from I-290.
Такие дела. Loop, the Gold Coast, прочие подобные места. Интересно, как Трамп все это организовал; скоро узнаем, надо полагать.
