About this Article

Authorities in Chicago are naming a drug kingpin in Mexico as the city's Public Enemy No. 1 -- a label first given to gangster Al Capone and one that hasn't been used since Prohibition. Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman is being singled out for his role as leader of the powerful Sinaloa cartel, which supplies the bulk of narcotics sold in the city, according to the Chicago Crime Commission and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration.
