A newly unsealed federal racketeering indictment charges five alleged members of the O-Block street gang with the August 2020 Gold Coast murder of Chicago rapper “FBG Duck.”
Charged in the Aug. 4, 2020, killing of the 26-year-old whose real name was Carlton Weekly are Charles “C Murda” Liggins, Kenneth “Kenny” Roberson, Tacarlos “Los” Offerd, Christopher “C Thang” Thomas and Marcus “Muwop” Smart.
The feds say Liggins, Offerd, Thomas and Smart were arrested Wednesday morning and were due in court Wednesday afternoon. Roberson is in the custody of the Cook County Department of Corrections.

Weekly was hit multiple times and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said Weekly was associated with a faction of the Gangster Disciples street gang called Jaro City, which is based near 62nd Street and Vernon Avenue in West Woodlawn. But on social media, Weekly identified himself as a member of a Gangster Disciples faction called STL/EBT, which is in the same area and mostly friendly with Jaro City.
