CHICAGO (WBBM NEWSRADIO) -- The mother of a slain Chicago rap recording artist pleaded Friday for peace, as police anticipated potential retaliation for his murder.

Twenty-six-year-old Carlton Weekly, who went by the name FBG Duck, was fatally shot Tuesday at 70 E. Oak St., near the Magnificent Mile, in what police have suggested was a targeted and gang-related killing. Two others were wounded. 

LaSheena Weekly said her son, the father of four, was shopping for a birthday party for one of his children at the time of the shooting. She said she didn't know the circumstances surrounding the attack but she said the violence should end there.

"I am here today to ask for peace in the city of the Chicago," Weekly said at the spot where her son was mortally wounded. "I am asking that his fans, friends of my son, to please not seek retaliation."

Police suggest the rapper may have made derogatory comments about some dead gang members.
