FILE - In this March 26, 2015, file photo, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel responds to a reporter's question after the second of three televised debates against Cook County Commissioner and Chicago mayoral candidate Jesus Garcia, ahead of next month's runoff election in Chicago. A few short years ago, violence on Chicago streets thrust a recently elected mayor into the national spotlight as shootouts in some of the city’s most troubled neighborhoods fueled nearly constant bloodshed. Emanuel spent nearly $200 million over two years to flood those streets with police working overtime. Since then, the city’s overall violence has declined, but the number of slayings in some minority neighborhoods actually jumped. (AP Photo/Nam Y. Huh, File)CHICAGO (AP) — A few years ago, violence on Chicago streets thrust a recently elected mayor into the national spotlight as shootouts in some of the city's most troubled neighborhoods fueled nearly constant bloodshed.
