On Monday, a man scaled five flights of a fire escape, stole three firearms, pointed the firearms at officers, and put on a bulletproof vest during SWAT training in Chicago.

During the training, officers were asked to put their guns on a table. The ammunition in those was replaced with non-fatal rounds designed for training purposes, CPD Supt. David Brown said. The man picked up three guns and pointed them at officers in the room, Brown said. One officer then shot the man. Brown said his injuries were not life-threatening.

This comes just days after Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot got into a back and forth with McDonald’s CEO Chris Kempczinski over his criticism of this city’s rising crime problem.

“Everywhere I go, I’m confronted by the same question: ‘What’s going on in Chicago?’” Kempczinski said during an event at the Economic Club of Chicago. “While it may wound our civic pride to hear it, there is a general sense out there that our city is in crisis.”

“What would have been helpful is for the McDonald’s CEO to educate himself before he spoke,” Lightfoot responded.

The mayor then referenced an open letter by Michael Fassnacht, her head of World Business Chicago, that “lays out in exactly detail all the good news, economic news, about what’s happening in our city, so I’m going to focus on those things and not the comments of CEO of McDonald’s.”

A McDonald’s spokesperson declined to comment on Lightfoot’s Wednesday remarks. 

Fox News political analyst Gianno Caldwell took on Lightfoot’s response saying, “The mayor is taking a page out of Joe Biden’s playbook: If you don’t like the facts, just gaslight the people. And that just simply won’t work in this situation. We just came off a weekend of violence. 63 people shot, including two, 16-year-old boys and a three-year-old girl.”

“2021 was the deadliest year in Chicago in a quarter-century with 797 homicides, the most since 1996 and 25 more than were recorded in 2020,” Yahoo reported.

Crime experts believe this rise in 2020 was a result of the defund the police movement.
