According to the Chicago Sun-Times, "multiple shots" were fired and "lots of weapons recovered" by police during the chaotic scene at Club O in Harvey early Saturday.

Shortly before Banks was killed, a Harvey police officer heard gunfire and noticed a person with a gun at the club at 17038 S Halsted St., according to Harvey spokeswoman Giavonni Nickson.

As the officer approached the club, more gunshots rang out during an "altercation," and the officer was hit in the thigh, Nickson said.

"Among the other shots flying, Banks was caught in it," she said.

Banks, 32, who lived in Chicago's Gresham neighborhood, was pronounced dead at the scene, according to Nickson and the Cook County medical examiner's office. He died from a gunshot wound to the head.

Sinica Price, 39, was taken to South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest and pronounced dead with a gunshot wound, she said, according to the Sun-Times.

It isn't clear if Price's death was in retaliation for Bank's shooting at the strip club.

Banks is the older bother of up-and-coming Chicago rapper Lil Durk, who moved to Atlanta in 2018 to escape the violence.
