Lil Reese Shot In Chicago
According to reports, the near-death situation took place Saturday morning in a parking garage near Chi-Town’s River North neighborhood. A shootout between Reese’s crew and an unknown gang ultimately resulted in him suffering an injury.
TMZ has confirmed that the 28-year-old gunshot victim — who was grazed in the eye — is, in fact, Lil Reese. Graphic video has surfaced that purportedly shows Lil Reese bleeding on the ground — this after he was allegedly involved in a car jacking of some sort that ended in gunshots.

We aren’t posting it here, but it’s easy enough to find. (TMZ)
