CelebnMusic247.com reports that police media notification, the three men, ages 20, 27, and 28, were found inside a parking garage.
According to police The 20-year-old man was shot twice in the knee and taken to Stroger Hospital in good condition, while the 27-year-old man was wounded multiple times in the body and taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
It was also revealed that Chicago rapper Lil Reese, whose real name is Tavares Taylor, was identified as the 28-year-old man who was shot.
At this time no one was in custody in the shooting.
The Chicago Tribune reports:
Before the shooting occurred, a man reported to police that his Dodge Durango was stolen, the report said. The man had a GPS tracking device on the Durango that showed the vehicle was in the downtown area. His father found the Durango in the Grand Plaza Parking garage, 32 W. Grand Ave., on the third floor. While the father tried to detain the people inside the Durango, someone came out from somewhere and opened fire into the Durango, causing it to hit a pillar.
The garage is part of a high-rise apartment tower at 525 N. Dearborn St. Police sources, citing preliminary information, said the three who were shot appeared to have been in a confrontation inside the garage. After the stolen vehicle crashed, those inside got out and “exchanged” shots with someone, the sources said.
Numerous shell casings were found at the scene, and two handguns were found in the Durango, the report said.
Taylor told police that he met the people in the Durango outside of the garage and directed them where to drive so he could buy cannabis from them, the report said. The other people who were shot gave police little information.
A graphic video circulating on social media appears to show part of the aftermath of the shooting. The woman filming the vertical video and a man off-camera is heard yelling at a man, wearing a hoodie and navy pants that appear to be stained with blood, walking out of a parking garage, and another man lying against a wall behind a barrier.
The second man, who looks like Taylor and has similar tattoos, appears to be going in and out of consciousness and heavily breathing as a Chicago police officer tries to talk to him and radios for an ambulance.
In the video, a man yelling says:
That (expletive) stole my car!
The woman says:
Look at Lil Reese! Look at Lil Reese!
the woman tells the man with the hoodie sitting on the ground:
You stole my (expletive)!
That wasn’t me.
About 5 p.m., a post was made to Lil Reese’s Instagram story, @reesemoney300, that read “Everyone Keep praying for Reese & his family.”
