Chicago World News is a YouTube Blogger who'd been covering the gang violence in Chiraq, chronicling all the murders, the affiliations and the beef that often overlaps with the rap game.
He had been anonymous for a while, but he recently started showing his face.
That may have been a bad idea.
There's a rumor floating around Chicago-based social media that Chicago World News was shot five times last weekend. What's for sure is that all of his social media has been deleted.

Some were more skeptical of the reports:
I think that Chicago world news shit gettin shot is fake I ain't never not seen a white man get shot a bunch of times and it's not news— Jimmy's Brother (@_FDW_) October 3, 2017
Chicago world news didn't get shot 5 times he just want some fame— LILSOLO (@Lilsolo_UDR) October 4, 2017
In a video posted earlier this year, Chicago World News claimed La Raza Gang members tried to come and find him but got the wrong address.
We'll update if and when we get more information.
