Chicago, IL – Lil Reese and two other men were shot in a Chicago parking lot in the early hours of Sunday (May 16). Reese — who survived a near-fatal shooting in November 2019 — escaped with an injury to his eye and was listed in fair condition, but one of the other men wasn’t so lucky. According to the Chicago Tribune, a 27-year-old man involved in the melee suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was taken to the Northwestern Memorial Hospital in critical condition.
At the time of the shooting, police discovered a stolen Dodge Durango crashed at the scene. Now, Chicago authorities have revealed Lil Reese was actually in the stolen car, which is where things took a nefarious turn.
Around 10 a.m. local time, a 55-year-old man tracked down his son’s Durango using the vehicle’s GPS system and attempted to detain the occupants in the car, including Lil Reese. But someone pulled out a gun and an all-out shootout commenced. Numerous shell casings were found at the scene and two handguns were found in the Durango.
An extremely graphic video circulating on social media appears shows the shooting’s aftermath. The woman filming and a man off camera are heard yelling at someone wearing a hoodie and navy pants that appear to be stained with blood. The second man, Reese, goes in and out of consciousness while the father screams at him as a Chicago police officer tries to talk to him before calling for an ambulance.
As of Wednesday (May 19), nobody has been charged in the incident, but police are continuing to investigate.
