Ever since rapper FBG Duck was shot dead in Chicago on Tuesday afternoon, many people have been asking who the rapper is.
Reports from friends who witnessed the shooting also have it that two others were seriously hurt, Chicago police said.
The rapper alongside two other friends were shopping on Oak Street when two vehicles pulled up. Four people exited those vehicles and shot at the shoppers on the sidewalk, police said.
“The offenders then produced firearms and fired shots at all three victims,” police said in a statement Tuesday evening.
The shooters fled the scene by car, police said.
“One guy pulled out a gun and start shooting at the other guy close range; after they stopped shooting, the guy who was doing the shooting ran that way,” a witness said.
A 26-year-old was shot in the chest, the groin and the neck. He was transported to Northwestern Hospital where he was pronounced dead just after 5 p.m., police said.
Multiple friends and people who know the deceased man identified him as Chicago rapper FBG Duck.
The 26-year-old is described as a well-respected, well-loved rapper but also as a well-hated one in the music world. A lot of young people looked up to him and liked his music.
Police have asked people to avoid the area as they investigate. They are working to recover video from the nearby stores and seeking out witnesses.
