Speculation of Lil Reese being shot began to circulate following multiple local reports that an unidentified man was shot in the neck in Country Club Hills near Chicago.

CBS Chicago reports that police were called at around 2:30 p.m. about a shooting that occurred at the intersection of 167th Street and Pulaski Road but the victim was not on the scene when authorities arrived. WGN reports that there was a car chase, and that witnesses  heard as many as 12 gunshots. According to the report, the individual who was pursuing Reese stepped out of his vehicle, shot Reese with a "small rife," and fled the scene. While the Country Club Hills Police Department provided Complex with a press release for the incident, they could not confirm the identity of the individual who was shot.
