Londre Sylvester, rapper known as KTS Dre, dead after being shot
A Chicago rapper was gunned down in a hail of bullets shortly after he got out of jail and put on an ankle shackle, reports say.
When Londre Sylvester, 31, left Cook County Jail just before 9 p.m. On Saturday night, armed men got out of two parked cars and shot him 64 times, according to a police report from the Chicago Tribune.
Two women were also injured in the ambush – a 60-year-old woman who had just deposited Sylvester’s bond and a 35-year-old woman who worked in prison, CWBChicago said.
Sylvester rapped on site as KTS Dre and had KTS tattooed on his neck next to a target sign, the report says. KTS stands for “Kill to Survive”, said the point of sale.
According to the police report, Sylvester was “just released” and equipped with an electronic monitoring device as part of his bail.
The rapper had been jailed for violating the terms of his release on a gun charge in 2020, the Tribune said. He posted $ 5,000 on bail on Friday, the newspaper said.
Sylvester and the 60-year-old woman walked to a waiting car on Saturday when they were mugged, CWBChicago said. He was hit in the face and chest and the woman was hit in the knee. The other woman was hit by a bullet, the report said.
Sylvester was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, where he was reportedly pronounced dead.
The shooters fled in their vehicles in different directions and the police are now looking for surveillance footage of the area, reports say.
