Authorities are waiting for an arrest warrant for a “person of interest” in the shooting of rapper Lil Reese earlier this month in south suburban Country Club Hills.

In a statement Monday, Country Club Hills Public Safety Director William Brown said police have “developed a person of interest” in the shooting near 167th Street and Pulaski Road. Police have also recovered a car involved in the shooting.

“Investigators are awaiting the issuance of an arrest warrant to arrest the individual,” Brown wrote.

About 2:30 p.m. on Nov. 11, officers responded to the area of 167th and Pulaski for reports of a shooting, Country Club Hills police said.

When they arrived, officers found a vehicle with fresh blood in the driver’s seat and on the ground next to the door, police said. Witnesses said a man had taken the victim from the scene.

Officers checked nearby hospitals and found a male with a gunshot wound to the neck area at South Suburban Hospital’s emergency room in Hazel Crest, police said. He was expected to be transferred to Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

According to news reports, hospital officials identified the person wounded in the shooting as Chicago rapper Tavares Taylor, also known as Lil Reese.

Hours after the shooting, fellow Chicago rapper and frequent collaborator Lil Durk tweeted “Reese good” with a blue heart emoji.

Lil Reese posted a photo on Instagram Nov. 17 of sutures in his neck with the caption “Made 4 it Lifes a gamble I got hella luck.”

The rapper also tweeted Monday that he’d recorded a song titled “16 Shots” on which he had to whisper because “I can’t talk rite.”

    I wonder who shot the lil guy and why? Maybe rappers get shot by other rappers who want to limit their competition? I'm not wise to the ways of the hood to say the least.

    I miss the days when then mayor Dwight Welch would be running his mouth how we are going to get to the bottom of this, like he did when they found Christopher Kelly dead. Really nothing to see here just your usual hood rat behavior.
