CHICAGO, ILLINOIS – JULY 22: Crime scene tape remains on a fence near the Rhodes funeral home in the Auburn Gresham neighborhood on July 22, 2020 in Chicago, Illinois. At least 15 people were shot yesterday during a funeral at the funeral home. More than 2000 people have been injured and more than 400 have been killed in Chicago so far this year. Today President Trump said he was planning to send several hundred federal agents to the city to help curtail the violence. (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
