CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The Chicago Transit Authority announced it would be suspending all buses and trains Sunday evening in the wake of widespread protests that turned violent Saturday.

All CTA service will be suspended at 6:30 p.m. Sunday “at the request of public safety officials,” the transit agency said. They expect service to resume Monday morning but did not offer an exact time.

Saturday’s protests in response to the death of George Floyd ended with violent confrontations between police and protesters. Buildings across the downtown area were looted and vandalized, and several police vehicles were flipped or burned in the chaos.
