Active Shooter Drill At Chicago’s Wrigley Field Thursday

While looking for the latest on Chicago’s debt crisis from Fran Spielman (Chicago Sun-Times), I spotted this on the newspaper’s website Wednesday afternoon:

One week after a lone gunman opened fire on police officers securing a Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas, emergency responders in Chicago will simulate an “active shooter” situation at Wrigley Field.

The emergency preparedness drill involving “simulated ammunition and flashbangs” will be held between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. Thursday, prompting street closings around the stadium…

(Editor’s note: Bold added for emphasis)

Spielman reported Waveland Avenue, from Clinton to Kenmore, will be closed to both vehicle/pedestrian traffic while the exercise takes place. The drill will involve the Chicago Fire Department, Chicago Police Department, and the city’s Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC).

You can read the Sun-Times piece here for more information.

More on Chicago’s mounting financial woes tomorrow…
