Chicago rapper FBG Duck has been shot in killed in a brazen drive-by shooting in broad daylight near the city’s famed Magnificent Mile.

The shooting occurred at about 4.37pm on Tuesday on East Oak Street in the Gold Coast neighborhood, where Duck and two friends were shopping in the area’s upscale boutiques.

Police say that two cars pulled up, and four individuals got out and opened fire, striking the three victims, before fleeing the scene. 

FBG Duck, a 26-year-old whose real name is Carlton D. Weekly, was transported to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead. He was identified as the deceased victim by police radio traffic and family members on social media. 

A 36-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman were also taken to area hospitals, and both were in serious condition, police said.

Shocking video from the scene appears to show Weekly and the other members of his entourage following the shooting, sprawled in the street with their injuries.

Police say the four gunmen fled the scene in two vehicles, a black Ford Taurus and a silver Chrysler 300M. 

Both vehicles fled westbound on Oak Street, and no suspects are in custody. 

It is just the latest incident of violence to rock Chicago, which has seen murders soar by 152 percent and shootings rise 62 percent in the past four weeks, compared with the same time period last year, according to Chicago Police Department data

Still, the shooting came as a shock on the upscale Gold Coast block lined with boutique shops, just off Michigan Avenue, where violence is usually rare.

The epicenters of recent violence in Chicago have been mainly away from the downtown core on the city’s South and West Sides, where gang rivalries are more common.

Weekly was reportedly affiliated with the Tooka Gang, previously known as the Gangster Disciples.

In 2017, the rapper’s brother FBG Brick was shot and killed on Chicago’s South Side.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to call Cook County Crime Stoppers anonymously for a potential cash reward at 1-800-535-7867.
