The mother of slain Chicago rapper FBG Duck says the FBI has five suspects in custody for his murder.

The aspiring rapper was gunned down in a drive-by shooting while he shopped with friends in the famed Gold Coast area of downtown Chicago on August 4, 2020.

The 26-year-old rapper, who was born Carlton Weekly, was one of Chicago's rising drill rappers. He was a member of the rap collective Fly Boy Gang, abbreviated as FBG.

His mother LaSheena Weekly took to social media on Wednesday to announce the FBI had five suspects in custody.

She said in a video:

"They killed my motherf**king son. I'm gonna be the first to tell you, they got them motherf**kers. They killed my son."

Cell phone video captured Duck's final moments as he struggled to breathe after being shot multiple times.

The rapper and his friends had just exited a store when a black Taurus and a silver Chrysler 300 pulled up. Four shooters got out of the two vehicles and opened fire on the group.

At least 50 shots were fired at the victims in broad daylight, police say. One other man was injured but survived.

Some say Duck's murder was in retaliation for dissing deceased Chicago gang members on his last song, titled "Dead B*tches," which dropped in 2020.

Cumberland County Sheriff

A U.S. Army sergeant who fatally shot his pregnant mistress as she drove on a Georgia highway, was arrested in North Carolina.

Alonzo Dargan Jr., 30, was arrested at Fort Bragg in Cumberland County on Thursday.

Dargan was on active duty at Fort Bragg as a staff sergeant, Channel 2 Action News reports.

Dargan is accused of killing Akeila Ware, 29, of LaGrange, Ga., and their unborn child, as she drove on Highway 18 in Troup County, Ga. on Tuesday, October 5.

Dargan has been charged with murder, feticide and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Authorities initially believed Ware was shot during a road rage incident.

After Ware was shot, her bullet-riddled Honda Accord veered off the highway and crashed near E. Drummond Road.

Georgia State Patrol troopers responding to a report of a single-car crash found Ware unresponsive inside the car, authorities said.

Ware and her unborn child were pronounced dead at a Columbus-area hospital.

Ware, a single mother of five, was expecting her 6th child.

Dargan is married with children. None of Ware's other children were fathered by Dargan.

Troup County Sheriff James Woodruff announced Dargan's arrest in a press conference on Friday morning.

"I could not believe somebody had shot and killed a young mother with five children," Woodruff said. "And on top of that, killed her and she had a baby inside her that resulted in the death of that baby."

Woodruff said Dargan grew up in Troup County.

The teenager who shot four people in an Arlington, Texas high school on Wednesday was released on $75,000 bond after turning himself in.

Timothy George Simpkins, 18, walked free from jail after he turned himself accompanied by his attorney on Wednesday evening.

The teenager posted bond hours after he shot up a classroom at Timberview High School on Oct. 6.

Family members say Simpkins was constantly "bullied" because he "was rich" and "had nice things."

Carol Harrison Lafayette, a spokesperson for the family, told reporters that Simpkins had been bullied and robbed twice at school.

"This is a situation where Timothy was being bullied," Harrison Lafayette said.

"It had been reported to the principals right along with the teachers. I'm not trying to justify the gun that was brought, but when you're being bullied, when there's bullies, throughout this nation you hear of young people ... committing suicide."

She described Simpkins as an "outgoing, loving person" who lives with his grandmother who helped raise him.

"He's been around his grandmother, his loving mother, they taught him to love, and he was a giver... mostly well liked up until the point where he got into his senior year... He was looking forward to graduating and doing something with his life."

Cell phone video taken by another student shows a boy who looks like Simpkins covering his head with his hands while a 15-year-old boy punched him repeatedly.
 

After the fight, Simpkins reportedly retrieved a black Glock handgun from his backpack and shot the 15-year-old, who is still hospitalized.

An Instagram photo shows Simpkins sitting in his silver Dodge Charger with a black handgun visible in the driver's side door pocket.

Simpkins also allegedly shot 25-year-old Calvin Pettitt, a male teacher who broke up the fight. Pettitt was shot in the back. A female student who was grazed by a bullet was released from the hospital on Wednesday.

It isn't clear why Simpkins was in the same class as a 15-year-old.

Simpkins' family claims he was bullied by other students because he has nice things. They claim he lashed out in self-defense.

His family described Simpkins as a 'lovable' kid who was only trying to defend himself.
