Rapper killed a week after posting video making fun of rival gang

week ago, rapper Shaquon Thomas posted a video making fun of a rival gang while pretending to hold a gun in his hands.

"You don't even know how to shoot," Thomas rapped in the video, titled "Shooters."

Early Friday, the 20-year-old Thomas was gunned down about a block from where he recorded that video on the streets of Uptown. It's an area where three street gangs -- the Conservative Vice Lords, the Gangster Disciples and the Black P Stones -- have been locked in a long-running feud. Thomas was a Gangster Disciple, according to police.

Around 1:35 a.m. Friday, he was with a friend in the 4800 block of North Kenmore Avenue when a gunman walked up and started shooting, authorities said. Thomas was hit twice in the back and taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 3:01 a.m.

It was at least the third time someone had tried to kill Thomas in the last year and a half, according to police. The other two times, innocent bystanders died.

• In February 2014, a masked gunman opened fire at a McDonald's restaurant at Pratt Boulevard and Clark Street. Markeyo Carr, 17, who had grabbed a few bucks from his mother before heading to the McDonald's, was shot in the head and collapsed in the driveway. Thomas and two other teens were wounded.

• In July, a man fired shots in the 1300 block of West Devon Avenue and hit Wil Lewis in the back and the head as he waited for a bus. The 28-year-old was about to start a new job as a photographer. He was killed less than a mile from his home.

Investigators suspect all three shootings stemmed from gang rivalry. A law enforcement source said Thomas may actually have been shot at other times, too.

Thomas has posted several rap videos under the name Young Pappy. In them, he raps about shooting gang rivals.

In a video titled "Homicide" posted in April, he raps "we pop out at night but you can still get smoked at noon. ... Head shots rolling up on the dead ops (opposition). I don't lack, I got my gat (gun)."

In the video posted a week ago, Thomas raps, "Gotta a whole lotta shooters on the squad, gotta squad for the shooters. ... If I catch an op, I'm smokin' them."

Thomas had several arrests on his record. Most of them were for misdemeanors, like criminal trespassing, reckless conduct, theft and marijuana possession.

In 2013 he was convicted of felony weapon possession and sentenced to two years of probation. But Cook County court records show he violated that probation and was sentenced to one year in prison.

In January he was arrested and charged with felony marijuana possession and misdemeanor reckless conduct. According to a police report, Thomas was found with about 20 grams of marijuana with an estimated street value of $200.

Most recently he was among roughly 30 people charged after a SWAT team was involved in a five-hour standoff at his home in the 6300 block of North Lakewood Avenue in the Edgewater neighborhood. Court records show he was charged with disorderly conduct and marijuana possession, both misdemeanors.

Police reported no one in custody in his shooting Friday morning
