Police say they have a strong suspect in the murder of 9-year-old Tyshawn Lee. State Rep. Ken Dunkin is in hot water after breaking ranks with Democrats again. Macy’s flagship store on State Street may go part-residential. Work on the Lucas Museum of Narrative of Arts is stalled as a lawsuit is considered. And medical marijuana debuts in Illinois.
