RAPPER KTS Dre has been shot dead in a brutal Chicago ambush that may have been related to his gang affiliation, the same fate that met his brother and fellow rapper KTS Von, who also died from gun violence in 2015.
The 31-year-old, whose real name is Londre Sylvester, was shot at least 64 times as he left jail in a well-planned, targeted attack that occurred at approximately 8.50pm local time.
The rapper was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Police have now identified KTS Dre as a member of the Lakeside faction of the Gangster Disciple, one of the most notorious street gangs in America, the Chicago Sun-Times reported. They have a long history of lawlessness and a presence throughout the US.
