Chicago Shooting that Killed 2-Year-Old Boy Caught on Facebook Live

The woman, 20, was in the passenger seat.

Lavontay White, his aunt and her boyfriend were driving in Chicago when a gunman cut them off, got out of the auto and opened fire on their vehicle.

Just over three minutes into the video, the woman looked toward the passenger side of the vehicle and appeared to react a split second before shots rang out and glass began to shatter. She recorded the incident as it unfolded on Facebook Live, unaware that they would be ambushed on their drive as the couple sang along to a Chief Keef song.

Someone inside the house can be heard saying, "Call 911!" "I got a bullet in my stomach".

"Please, please, I can't breathe", she cried. Oh my God, please don't, Lord, I can't go. Both were shot in the head. The man was pronounced dead shortly after. Two girls ages 11 and 12 were shot in the head by gunmen who were aiming at someone else, in an area of the city known for heavy gang activity.

The woman, who is pregnant, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, and she and her unborn child are in stable condition, Guglielmi said. Both girls were in critical condition on Monday but police have not updated their condition since. This was the second shooting of a child in Chicago on that day.

As the vehicle turned down a narrow alleyway, it was ambushed in what police are calling a targeted shooting.

Johnson is being held without bond on first-degree murder charges.

Ja'Mal Green, an activist in the city, said more gun laws and police will not reduce violence.

The meeting follows a threat by President Donald Trump to "send the Feds!" if Emanuel can't find a way to get a grip on the situation. Relatives told the newspaper she was about four months pregnant and is expected to survive.

Chicago Police Supt Eddie Johnson said no arrests have bene made in the connection with the killing of two-year-old Lavontay, but the police have some "very promising leads".

Visibly angry, Johnson again demanded legislative action for repeat gun offenders.

Community organizer Ja'mal Green agrees. Murder charges were filed early Wednesday against a 19-year-old man in Holmes' death, but how detectives tied suspect Antwan C. Jones to the shooting was not immediately available, the Tribune reports. "I'm a father and my first born is nearly 2 years old".
