Chicago’s U.S. Attorney John Lausch spoke during a press conference on Wednesday (October 13) in regard to five Chicago-area men being charged in a racketeering conspiracy and the murder of FBG Duck.

An 11-page indictment unsealed Wednesday alleged those charged with murder in aid of racketeering are Charles "C Murda" Liggins, 30; Kenneth "Kenny" Roberson, 28; Tacarlos "Los" Offerd, 30; Christopher "C Thang" Thomas, 22; and Marcus "Muwop" Smart, 22. Roberson was already being held on charges related to another shooting, and prosecutors asked that the other four defendants be held without bond pending trial. They are facing a minimum of life in prison and a potential death sentence.

Speaking about the arrests during the press conference, Lausch stated, "If this gives pause to [other people] then we're doing something good. And we're going to continue to do more of this."

Chicago Police Supt. David Brown also spoke at the press conference, where he addressed possible retaliation incidents in the future. He warned, "We are going after gangs in this city." Brown also addressed the city getting help on the federal level to crack down on the ongoing violence, stating, "It’s the message that we’re serious about our collaboration. More to come. We’re dedicated to this."
