Gunfire on one of Chicago’s most exclusive retail shopping streets Tuesday afternoon left a man dead and two other victims injured, according to Chicago police. No arrests have been made.

Police officers responded to the first block of East Oak around 4:15 p.m. after multiple 911 callers reported seeing a man chasing another man down the street with a gun, but no shots were fired. The gunman reportedly got into a black sedan that drove away westbound. At the same time, a retail store on the same block reported that two men had run inside their business to hide from someone who was on the street.

Cops who were investigating the call declared a “10-1” police emergency at 4:24 p.m. when gunfire erupted on the same stretch of Oak Street.

CPD Area Three Dep. Chief Daniel O’Shea said four gunmen emerged from two cars and began firing on a group of three people who were standing outside a store on Oak Street. 

Two members of that group — a 26-year-old man and a 36-year-old man — were shot. A 28-year-old woman who was sitting in a parked car was also shot, O’Shea said.

The front glass door of Dolce & Gabbana’s boutique was shattered by the gunfire. A handgun was seen lying in a traffic lane on Oak Street.

The younger man, identified as Carlton Weekly, died a short time later at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Weekly, who rapped under the name FBG Duck, suffered gunshot wounds to his chest, groin, and neck, police said.

The other male victim is in serious condition at Northwestern with gunshot wounds to his back, side, and flank. The woman, who was shot in her left hand, is in good condition at AMITA St. Joseph Hospital, according to police.

All four gunmen returned to their cars and fled the area. One of their vehicles is a silver Chrysler 300M and the other is a black Ford Taurus, O’Shea said during a press conference Tuesday evening.

Area Three detectives are investigating.

In 2018, FBG Duck was wounded in a double-shooting that left another rapper dead. His older brother, who went by the name FBG Brick, was fatally shot in July 2017, according to Chicago music media reports.
