A business district that had been blocked since a July 4 parade mass shooting that left seven people dead reopens in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park.
The 2-block by 3-block area consists largely of small shops and restaurants. It had been blocked off with crime scene tape, barricades and uniformed officers since Monday as the FBI and other law enforcement agencies processed evidence.
The street was generally quiet shortly after police removed the barricades, except for news media vehicles, a few other vehicles and people walking.
The reopening comes two days after funerals started for the seven people who were killed in the shooting. Authorities said the attacker fired more than 80 rounds into the parade crowd with semi-automatic rifle. Four of those who were killed in the shooting were members of the Jewish community, in a town with a heavy concentration of Jewish residents.
