Chicago rapper Lil Reese is in critical condition after being shot, according to multiple local reports.
ABC7 Chicago and WGN9 report Lil Reese, whose real name is Tavares Taylor, is in the hospital and listed in critical condition after suffering a gunshot wound in the neck Monday afternoon (Nov. 11) at an intersection in the south suburbs of Chicago.
Police told the outlets they found blood in the driver’s seat and on the ground next to the car, adding that a man had already taken Taylor to a local hospital before they arrived on the scene. Reese was then transferred to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Illinois.
Shortly after stories about the incident started bubbling on the web, fellow Chicago rapper Lil Durk took to Twitter to share Reese’s health status. “Reese good,” he tweeted followed by a blue heart emoji.
