Chicago was not there at the time of the Trump incident. On Sunday, October 18, the president attended a church service in Las Vegas, NV, in the morning, and spoke at a rally in Carson City, NV in the afternoon.
13 hours later, Chicago police said the situation was "peacefully resolved," writes Chicago Tribune.
"The situation was resolved through peaceful negotiations," police spokesman Tom Ahern wrote on Twitter. - Suspect in custody. No injuries. "
According to him, this person did not live in the building, and it is unclear how he got inside. The investigation into the incident is ongoing.
Commander Patty Casey, who heads the crime investigation department, said a Russian translator had been called into the building and the building staff also helped negotiate with the perpetrator of the incident.
“It really was a team effort. What could have turned into a tragedy ended in a situation that was resolved without incident. Today, the Chicago Police Department and their partners literally saved the life of this young man, ”she said.
The suspect was taken to the hospital for a mental health assessment. According to the results of the examination, this person will be charged.
Some of the man's demands were met.
“We agreed on several concessions, which, in our opinion, were safe,” the police said, “but no one was going to arrange a meeting with the president.”
The $ 98 million, 847-story Trump Tower, which serves as a condominium and hotel, is 1390 feet (423,6 m) high. Its construction was completed in 2009.
