The alderman has previously said that gang members are targeting him and Thursday morning, he criticized Mayor Lightfoot for not doing enough.

"I've had enough," Lopez said. "I'm beyond pissed right now because I have to keep having these press conferences and keep calling out what each of us already know in our neighborhoods. We are all under attack by the failed policies that continue to enable and protect the gang bangers in our midst."
