Chicago rapper FBG Duck was gunned down in broad daylight on August 4, 2020 as he strolled down the affluent streets of the Windy City’s Gold Coast neighborhood. Over a year later, police have finally arrested the suspects.
On Wednesday (October 13), FBG Duck’s mother Lasheena Weekly headed to Instagram where she announced multiple people were in custody for the murder of her son.
“[The feds] just called me and told me they arrested Muwop, they arrested C-Thang, they arrested…two more, five people that they have in custody,” Weekly said in the video. “The lil boy who killed himself August the 24, he was one of the shooters. They shot my son, they just told me that … You heard it from me first. They got they ass. They got them muthafuckas.”
The men in custody include C-Thang — who was previously identified as the triggerman — Muwop and DQ. Zell, who was one of the accused shooters, recently committed suicide, as Weekly mentioned.
FBG Duck was one of three individuals shot in a drive-by shooting as they shopped around 4:30 p.m. local time. Authorities said four people got out of two different vehicles and opened fire.
In a disturbing video of the aftermath, Duck is seen facedown struggling to move as a woman screams for help. But it was too late. FBG Duck was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital after suffering multiple gunshot wounds to the torso.
Following the fatal incident, the Chicago Police Department was on high alert, concerned about a potential retaliation shooting for Duck’s murder. Safety alerts plastered throughout the city encouraged teens and young adults to stay inside over the weekend.
“Chicago Police have expressed concerns of a possible city-wide gang war in retaliation for Tuesday’s Gold Coast shooting of Chicago rapper [FBG] Duck,” the advisory note read at the time. “Please be careful!”
During a 2017 interview with VladTV, FBG Duck made it painfully clear he knew he was a marked man and felt like it was only a matter of time before karma caught up with him.
“Of course I know muthafuckas wanna kill me,” he said. “I’m a very disrespectful person. I know what I did in my lifetime. They don’t know because they don’t be out here with me. They don’t be on these blocks. You feel me? So they don’t know. Can’t nobody tell you shit about me like I could tell you about me.
“So it’s like, why would I put myself in a place where I know I ain’t supposed to be? So it’s like if I put myself in that place and I know I ain’t supposed to be there, then I know I’m looking for trouble.”
