'The Chi' Alum Barton Fitzpatrick Robbed at Gunpoint In Chicago

It’s been a while since The Chi fans have seen actor Barton Fitzpatrick. He starred as Reg, the older brother of Jake, on the Showtime drama for two seasons before being killed off at the conclusion of Season 2. Since his departure, it’s been rumored that the reason he exited the show was due to him having to have a love interest who is a transgender woman, which he denied. While he remains part of the acting world, he’s dealing with some personal trauma after recently being robbed at gunpoint.

Hot New Hip Hop reports that Chicago police revealed to TMZ that Fitzpatrick was a victim of armed robbery. Per the report, the actor “was a passenger in a car when someone slid into the back seat out of nowhere.” 

Fitzpatrick recently began promoting his role in a BET+ original film North of the 10. The film also stars 106 & Park alum Terrence J.

The suspect initially attempted a carjacking, but ultimately took Fitzpatrick's chain before fleeing the scene.

He has yet to speak about the incident publicly.
