6 Members Of O-Block Found Guilty Of Murder In The Killing Of FBG Duck

A federal jury officially concluded its deliberations regarding the 2020 fatal shooting of rapper FBG Duck, rendering a verdict in the case.

All six alleged O-Block street gang members, who were charged in the rapper’s death, have been found guilty.

The six individuals, identified as Charles Liggins, also known as “C Murda,” 30, Kenneth Roberson, also known as “Kenny” and “Kenny Mac,” 28, Tacarlos Offerd, also known as “Los,” 30, Christopher Thomas, also known as “C Thang,” 22, Marcus Smart, also known as “Muwop,” 22, and Ralph Turpin, also known as “Tall” and “Teezy,” 33, were charged in 2021 and 2023 with committing murder in aid of racketeering and conspiracy to commit murder in aid of racketeering. Some alleged members also faced firearm charges.

According to prosecutors, Carlton Weekly, who performed under the name FBG Duck, was shot dead, and two others were wounded on Aug. 4, 2020, near the Magnificent Mile when four people got out of their cars and opened fire on the sidewalk. Weekly was shopping for his son’s birthday when he was killed, his mother said.

A 36-year-old man and a 26-year-old woman who were sitting in a parked vehicle were also wounded in the shooting.

Prosecutors said that Weekly was a member of the STL/EBT, or Tookaville, faction of the Gangster Disciples, which it said had feuded with O Block, a faction of the Black Disciples.

According to a 45-page document unsealed in court in January 2022, investigators towed a car used in the shooting one day after it happened, later searched it, and found evidence that implicated Liggins. The document also points to so-called “diss tracks,” the songs posted online in which street gang members disrespect rivals, fueling violence on the streets.
