Arrest made after CPS schools targeted with threats of gun violence

Chicago Sun-Times Morning Edition
Good morning, Chicago —
Here’s the latest news as we close in on the weekend.
Top police officials announced Thursday that a south suburban man was taken into custody amid a series of online threats of gun violence against public schools across the city. The threats came as the Simeon community reeled from a pair of shootings earlier this week that left two students dead.
Our Watchdogs reporters Tim Novak and Robert Herguth also reported this morning about a politically connected Chicago attorney and banker whose application for a state gambling license was rejected in part because he did not meet the requirement for “good character, honesty and integrity.“ James J. Banks had worked under five Illinois governors, but the Gaming Board rejected his application in April.
And speculation over the Bears’ potential move to Arlington Heights continued with our Fran Spielman speaking to Marc Ganis, a Chicagoan who has advised numerous NFL teams on their stadium financing. Ganis has some bad news for Soldier Field: He says nothing short of new lakefront stadium will keep Bears in the city.
Get all that news and more below. Thanks for reading.
