New reports suggest the trouble started for the famous rapper after a 55-year old man tracked down his son’s stolen Dodge Durango using the vehicle’s GPS tracker.
After finding the vehicle, he attempted to detain the people in the car — which included Lil’ Reese — and someone started shooting. According to Chicago PD, a number of shell casings were found at the scene along with two handguns.
As we reported, Tekashi 6ix9ine (who has been beefing with Reese for quite some time) trolled the Chicago rapper on social media after reports surfaced of the stolen car. The rainbow rapper shared a video of himself singing Akon’s hit record, Locked Up’ which features the lyrics “my car is stolen.”
Lil’ Reese is expected to make a full recovery.
