The feds have charged five members of Chicago's O-Block gang with racketeering in the 2020 killing of rapper FBG Duck.
Duck was reportedly shopping for a birthday present for his son when he was gunned down.
"The reason that this is charged federally is that we were able to establish evidence that there was a racketeering enterprise here that was involved and this murder was done in furtherance of that," said Northern District of Illinois U.S. Attorney John Lausch.

The cops say the gang murdered FBG Duck "to increase the position of the O-Block street gang." They say are committed to getting street gangs off the streets.
The five men have been identified as Marcus Smart, 22; Charles Liggines, 30; Kenneth Robertson, 28; Tacarlos Offered, 30, and Christopher Thomas, 22.
The indictment also includes charges for firearm violations and assaults in the aid of racketeering. If found guilty, they could all be facing life in prison.
