AUBURN GRESHAM — Thousands of anti-violence demonstrators marched onto — and then shut down — the Dan Ryan Expy. Saturday morning to draw attention to the crisis of violence some Chicago residents endure on city’s South and West sides.

The peaceful morning protest led to the takeover of the northbound side of the Dan Ryan. Despite warnings from the State Police, no arrests were made, Chicago Police said.
