As per the report, this is the second time the rapper was being shot in the past two years. In June 2018, he was allegedly shot in his shoulder in Chicago. He lost one of his friends, known as Can’t Get Right, in that shooting. In 2017, the rapper’s brother FBG Brick was allegedly shot and killed in a violent shooting incident on Chicago’s Southside.

According to The Sun, authorities have said that four individuals got out of a black Ford Taurus and silver Chrysler and opened fire - hitting three people and fled the scene.

FBG Duck is a popular figure in the underground Chicago rap scene and is best known for his single “Slide.” He also previously got into an argument with rapper Tekashi 6ix9ine after the two traded threats on social media. Duck, whose real name is Carlton Weekly, was a member of Chicago's Fly Boy Gang and has been active on the music scene for 10 years now.

On hearing the news, Twitter was abuzz with reactions. Artist Ja’Mal Green expressed his anger on Twitter by commenting on the video saying, “Police neglected to offer basic medical aid to FBG Duck and I’m sure their excuse is going to be “Covid”. He laid there needing help and it took way too long for him to get help. How many Black men and women die because of time everyday after being shot? SICKENING!”
