Chicago rapper Lil Durk is in mourning once again as his brother, OTF DThang, has reportedly been shot and killed.
Details of the incident are scarce and conflicting at this time but the 32-year-old was shot and killed early Sunday morning, June 6, at around 2 a.m.
According to TMZ news, OTF DThang was reportedly found dead near the 7900 block of S. Loomis Blvd. in Chicago. The news was first reported by Instagram blog that published a post about someone being shot outside Club O in nearby Harvey, Ill. at around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning.
DThang, real name Dontay Banks Jr., was struck by bullets in front of the club and has since passed away. Durk and DThang were close and often seen together at events. Early last month, DThang posted a photo of himself and Durk, both dressed in suits, and captioned the photo; “We came a long way from Granny crib #OTF @lildurk.” And in the comment section, Durk wrote; “Love you fr.”
It is the second time Lil Durk has lost someone close to him in less than a year as of last November, he lost his close friend whom was also signed to his label, OTF, King Von. The rapper was shot following an altercation outside of a downtown hookah lounge and died of his injuries while in hospital.
Back in 2014, his cousin OTF Nunu who was 21 years old was also shot and killed in a broad daylight shooting that took place in Chicago.
