The 300 and 600 block community is mourning the loss of one if its own when aspiring rapper L’A Capone was gunned down upon leaving a recording studio Thursday evening.
L’A Capone, whose birth name is Leonard Anderson, entered an alley around 6:25 p.m. following his recording session when an unknown assailant fired several shots, striking the “Round Here” rapper in the right thigh and lower back, according to the Chicago Sun Times.
Medical personnel transported Anderson to Northwestern Memorial Hospital where he was pronounced dead at 8:30 p.m. He was 17.
