Chief Keef affiliate, and up and coming Chicago rapper, L’A Capone was shot and killed while leaving a Chicago recording studio on Thursday.

As reported by the Chicago Sun Times, according to Chicago PD spokeswoman Amina Greer, L’A Capone, real name Leonard Anderson, who has ties to Chief Keef, and friends with Lil Durk, was shot in the right thigh and lower back as he walked through an alley after a recording session at a South Shore studio.

Police also noted that Capone had documented gang affiliations and that an investigation into his murder is ongoing.

Yesterday, as word spread that Capone was shot, Durk took to Twitter and wished his friend well. Then, just 4-hours later, Durk tweeted out, “rip lil bro” after the 17-year-old L’A Capone was confirmed dead at the Northwestern Hospital.
