Lil Reese, American Rapper Reportedly Shot in Chicago


According to the Chicago Tribune, a preliminary investigation suggests the involved parties began shooting at each other shortly before 10 a.m. Responding officers say they found three men—ages 20, 27, and, 28—inside a parking garage with gun shot wounds.


 The 20-year-old is reportedly in stable condition after being shot twice in the knee, while the 27-year-old is said to be in critical condition after sustaining multiple shots to the body.

Reese, whose legal name is Tavares Lamont Taylor, was identified as the third man. The Tribune reports he was transferred to Northwestern Memorial Hospital after a bullet grazed his eye. Though Reese is said to be in “fair condition,” his managers took to Instagram on Saturday night, asking fans to keep him in their prayers.

Prior to the shooting, a man alerted police that his Dodge Durango had been stolen. The vehicle was reportedly equipped with a tracking device, which showed the car was in a parking garage at a downtown apartment complex. According to the Tribune, the father of the vehicle owner went to the location and attempted detain the men who were inside the Durango before someone opened fire into the car, causing it to crash into a pillar. Sources say it was at that time when people exited the Durango and began exchanging shots with someone.

Officers reportedly found two hand guns and numerous shell casings at the scene.
