R.I.P. John Walt (Dinner With John), founding member of Pivot Gang

Sad, sad news to begin the day today. The 24-year old founding member of Pivot Gang, John Walt who recently released music as Dinner With John, was stabbed to death after an altercation near the Metra in River West.

According to ABC7, a fistfight occurred before the stabbing and was captured on surveillance footage at a nearby CTA stop.

Witnesses said a man was punched, and he began to walk away before turning around, chasing another man down and stabbing him. The fight may have stemmed from an argument that occurred on a CTA train, ABC7 reported. (via DNAinfo)

Chicago has been outpouring stories and support throughout the day on Twitter as #RIPJohnWalt has been trending all day too. It sounds like we really lost a genuine real one who was only starting to scratch the surface of his artistry. R.I.P.
