  • The “Good Morning Chicago” broadcast talked about rising gun violence in the city, which suffered a mass shooting incident just last week.
  • FOX 32 reported later in the day that no one was injured during the incident.
  • The authorities now consider the man to be a person of interest and have accused him of aggravated assault with a firearm.
