Chicago police say they've arrested nine people involved in an open-air drug market on the city's West Side.

Police say their investigation was prompted by a spike in shootings and violence near the corner of Ohio and Hamlin.

Officers say they watched as several drug deals were carried out. In addition to the arrests, police recovered $3,000 worth of heroin and $6,700 in cash.
