An anti-violence march in Chicago briefly closed Chicago's Lake Shore Drive on Thursday afternoon as protesters demonstrated against the city's spiraling crime crisis and called for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to step down.

A spokesman for Chicago police said Lake Shore Drive was closed for about 35 minutes on Thursday afternoon, as demonstrators marched toward the home of the Cubs, Wrigley Field.

Lake Shore Drive will be opened shortly as demonstrators march on Belmont towards Wrigley Field. No arrests or issues. Total closure time was approx 35 minutes.

The march was timed with the start of the music fest Lollapalooza and before a Cubs game at Wrigley.
