Lil Reese is reportedly in critical condition after being shot in Chicago.
According to a report ABC Chicago published on Monday evening (Nov. 11), the Chicago rapper was shot in Chicago this afternoon. Rumors that the rapper was shot first surfaced on Twitter, but it was only confirmed after ABC Chicago published their report this evening. He is said to now be in critical condition.
The shooting reportedly took place between the city’s Pulaski Road and 167th Street. Police say they responded to calls to the scene, but upon their arrival, Reese, born Tavares Taylor, had already been taken to the hospital. They say there was blood on the ground and in Reese’s car when they arrived.
From there, authorities reportedly searched nearby hospitals for a man that suffered a gunshot wound in his neck. They found him in South Suburban Hospital’s emergency room before he was transferred to Christ Medical Center.
Before the news was confirmed, the Normal Backwrds rapper’s fellow Chicagoan Lil Durk tweeted out a message indicating that Reese was doing fine, though he didn’t provide any additional context. In the tweet, Durk wrote simply, “Reese good 💙.”
This is a developing story, and more information will be added as details become available.
