In our weekly news roundup, Morning Shift digs into some of the biggest local and state stories in education, crime and business. We’ll discuss the shooting of a University of Chicago student by a campus police officer, the village of Deerfield banning assault weapons, and how President Trump’s tariffs are affecting Chicagoland and the Midwest, as well as other big local stories.
