At least 14 people were wounded in a mass shooting at a funeral home on Chicago's South Side on Tuesday night, police said at a news briefing.

The big picture: The shooting happened one day after President Trump threatened to send federal law enforcement into other cities run by Democrats — including Chicago, where Homeland Security was reportedly drafting plans to send some 150 federal agents this week.

  • About 2,000 Customs and Border Protection, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the U.S. Coast Guard and Transportation Security Administration officials have been on standby for deployment to cities, per the New York Times.

What they're saying: Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted on Tuesday night, "Under no circumstances will I allow Donald Trump's troops to come to Chicago and terrorize our residents."

What's happening: Chicago Police First Deputy Eric Carter said shots were fired about 6:30pm from a black vehicle toward attendees at the funeral home at 1018 W. 79th Street. "Attendees of the funeral exchanged gunfire with the black vehicle," he said.

  • Shots continued to be fired as the vehicle drove down the road before it crashed. The occupants fled, but police have a suspect in custody.
  • The victims were hospitalized, but police could not give any information on their conditions.

Louisville to pay $12 million settlement to family of Breonna Taylor

The Louisville Metro government on Tuesday announced a $12 million settlement package with the family of Breonna Taylor, a 26-year-old Black woman who was shot in her own home by police officers in March. The settlement also includes a series of police reforms.

The big picture: The settlement is the largest ever paid by the city's police, per the Louisville Courier Journal. It will close out the wrongful death lawsuit filed in April by Taylor's mother, Tamika Palmer. Other legal proceedings related to Taylor's death have not yet concluded.
