Tensions erupt at wake for slain teen rapper Lil Jojo
 

 
Tensions erupted late Friday morning at the wake of slain teen rapper Lil Jojo as hundreds of mourners, eager to take a last look, surged toward his casket, nearly knocking it to the floor and pushing family members out of the way, prompting Chicago police to clear the funeral home.

Lil Jojo’s mother and sister were led out of the viewing area hysterical, as other family members took to the microphone, yelling at other mourners to “Get the f--- out!”

Gang presence appeared to be heavy at the funeral home, with many mourners exchanging gang handshakes.

Chicago police swarmed the area, with about a dozen unmarked police cars circling the Jones Funeral Home at 79th and Kedzie and a police helicopter buzzing above.

The fracas began as the family of Lil Jojo — whose real name is Joseph Coleman — gathered in front of the casket of the teen to pay their respects before the casket was taken away for the funeral procession.

Mourners, some wearing RIP Jojo T-shirts, instead of waiting in line, surged to the front, nearly causing the casket to topple over.

JoJo was gunned down earlier this month after feuding with rival rappers as well as with the Black Disciple street gang for months. He was fatally shot near 69th and Princeton in the Englewood neighborhood.

Witnesses said Coleman, was riding double on a bike —standing on the back — when a car pulled up and someone fired six or seven shots, k!lling him.

The funeral procession eventually went to Mt. Hope Cemetery.

After the casket was lowered into the ground and mourners left, police from Chicago, Cook County and Merrionette Park converged on some cars outside the cemetery, searching occupants and vehicles.

Police closed down several blocks around 111th and Fairfield as they conducted their operation.

Authorities had received reports of shots being fired nearby and a man waiving a gun.

Police had several people lined up on the sidewalk and in handcuffs near a gas station at 111th and Talman, despite protests from their family members that they had done nothing wrong.
