*Lil Durk‘s older brother, OTF DThang, was fatally shot this weekend outside a club in Chicago. 

Here’s more from TMZ:

Cook County officials tell us Dontay Banks Jr. — DThang’s government name — was found deceased on the 7900 block of S. Loomis Blvd. in Chicago, and has been assigned a case number. An autopsy still has to be done to figure out the cause and manner of death. Reports say DThang was shot in the head outside of a nightclub and died on the spot … citing alleged witnesses who say they saw the shooting go down.

DThang, who was 32 at the time of his death, was a rapper but he never reached the status of his more famous brother Durk.
