CHICAGO -- Following a deadly shooting at the airport in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Chicago police are increasing their presence at O'Hare and Midway Airports.
"Thoughts are with those affected by tragedy in Ft. Lauderdale. While no current threat to Chicago, CPD will be increasing airport presence," the official CPD Twitter account tweeted Friday.
