Chicago-based rapper FBG Duck, born Carlton Weekly, was shot and killed in what police believe was a “targeted shooting” on Tuesday in downtown Chicago.

The rapper was shot on the 100 block of East Oak Street, one of Chicago’s most fashionable streets known for its boutiques and high-end retail in the city’s Gold Coast neighborhood. He was later pronounced dead at Chicago’s Northwestern Memorial Hospital. FBG Duck was 26 years old at the time of his death.

During a press conference, Chicago Police Deputy Chief Daniel O’Shea stated that three individuals were shot while shopping: including the rapper, a 36-year-old man with him and a nearby 28-year-old woman who was injured. Detectives believe the shooting was a planned attack in which either Weekly or the other man was “targeted.”

Authorities are investigating the incident further, interviewing witnesses, examining surveillance footage and are searching for the cars involved. Police claim that two men climbed from two dark-colored vehicles and opened fire before driving off.

FBG Duck’s career was brief but successful. The rapper released four records in the last five years along with dozens of singles and tracks with members from the Fly Boy Gang.
