CHICAGO (CelebrityAccess) – Rapper Lil Reese (real name Tavares Taylor) is reportedly in critical condition in a Chicago area hospital after being shot in the neck while his vehicle was stopped at an intersection, according to ABC 7 Chicago.
Police were called to the scene of the shooting, which took place about 40 minutes outside of Chicago on Monday afternoon, where they found “fresh blood” in the driver’s seat and on the ground near the vehicle, TMZ is reporting.
Witnesses have also reported seeing a male suspect exit a separate vehicle and then shoot Taylor with “a small rifle” before fleeing, according to Consequence of Sound.
Reports suggest that when police arrived on the scene, Taylor had already been taken to Advocate South Suburban Hospital after being picked up by an unidentified man immediately following the incident.
He was later transferred to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn where he is said to be in a critical condition.
Additional details surrounding the shooting remain scarce. No arrests have yet been made.
