Rapper Lil Reese, who made a career out of mocking his dead opps, was shot and wounded in a parking garage in downtown Chicago Saturday morning.
Reese, born Tavares Taylor, was shot along with two other men. All three men were transported to a Chicago hospital. Another man is still at large.
A stolen Dodge Durango was crashed outside the parking garage. The vehicle was riddled with bullet holes, @CWBChicago reports.
The hashtag "Lil Reese dead" began trending on Twitter.com after someone uploaded grisly cellphone video of the wounded rapper spitting up blood. He is handcuffed and struggling to breath.

A woman can be heard accusing Reese and another man of stealing her car. "You wasn't driving, but you stole my sh*t!" she told another wounded man.
On November 11, 2019, Reese was shot in the throat at a busy intersection in Country Club Hills. Witnesses told police Reese was shot by a gunman following a brief car chase.
A week later, Reese sent out a tweet noting he is "Alive and well."
A day after he was discharged from the hospital, he release a track titled "Come Outside."
Reese, 28, is among a crew of hardcore gang members-turned-rappers who launched Chicago's drill scene in the early 2010s. Reese is affiliated with former gang members Lil Durk, Fredo Santana, and Chief Keef.
Durk and Keef fled Chicago after their gang affiliates were killed in turf wars. Durk moved to Atlanta where he was joined later by Chicago rapper King Von. Both men were arrested in connection with a shooting and kidnapping in Atlanta in June 2019.
Von, 26, was still awaiting trial on attempted murder charges when he was gunned down by aspiring rapper Lul Tim, 22, during a fistfight with aspiring rapper Quando Rondo, 22, outside an Atlanta nightclub On November 6, 2020.
Update: Video shows Reese sitting up with the help of police after the shooting.
