An aspiring drill rapper was gunned down in an alleyway on Chicago’s South Side Thursday.
The 18-year-old gang banger, known online as Lil Tae, had just live-streamed an Instagram video about an hour before he was killed.
He was standing in an alley in rival gang territory when he was shot and killed.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the teenager was shot multiple times in the face and chest on the 800 block of East 62nd Street about 3:30 p.m.
He was transported to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
