HARVEY, Ill. — The brother of rapper “Lil Durk” was shot to death outside a Harvey strip club early Sunday and a police officer was wounded in a separate shooting.
Dontay Banks Jr., 32, — known by his rap name “OTF DThang” — was shot outside of a Club O, a strip club in the 17000 block of South Halsted, just after 12:20 p.m. Sunday.
Police said Banks was shot in the head and died at the scene. An autopsy is expected to be performed.
Just before the shooting, a Harvey police officer observed a patron possessing a gun. An altercation ensued and Officer Muhamed sustained a gunshot wound from an unidentified suspect. He was treated by doctors and released from the hospital in good condition.
Later on in the night, police responded to a deadly shooting in the 100 block of West 155th Street. The victim, Sinica Price, was pronounced dead at South Suburban Hospital. Police believe that shooting may have been in retaliation.
No one is in custody to any of the shootings as authorities continue to investigate. Anyone with information should contact the Harvey Police Department at 708-331-3030.
Lil Durk has not yet commented on his brother’s death.
