Shooting captured on Facebook Live claims life of Chicago toddler

A man woman and toddler were shot while sitting in a car in the 2300-block of South Kenneth in Chicagos North Lawndale neighborhood police said

Police said the SUV had no connection to the deadly shooting, which appears to have been streamed live on Facebook. A 30-year-old man was riding in a vehicle when another auto pulled up and someone inside it shot him in the chest, police said.

The little boy who died is the nephew of the pregnant woman who was also shot. Police claim that the man who died was a known gang member.

Lavontay is the third child this week to be shot in Chicago.

A shooting caught on Facebook Live left a 2-year-old boy and a man dead, and a pregnant woman injured.

A two-year-old boy was tragically killed in Chicago Tuesday afternoon in what police called a suspected gang-related shooting amid ongoing gun violence in the embattled city, reports USA Today. "I have a bullet in my stomach", a traumatized Breunna screams. "I can't go. I can't go".

Two-year-old Lavontay was pronounced dead at hospital along with his aunt's boyfriend.

The woman was rushed to the hospital where she and her unborn child are said to be in stable condition, according to police spokesperson Anthony Guglielmi.

Toshiba reports $6.3bn loss in nuclear business, chairman to step down
The heavy net loss will be another blow to the company that reported a group net loss of ¥479.4 billion a year earlier. The company said it will reorganize its nuclear business to be directly under Tsunakawa for stricter monitoring.


The city had 4,000 shooting victims and 762 homicides a year ago, according to police statistics.

News images from the crime scene showed a maroon Oldsmobile Alero stopped in the alley where police said the victims were ambushed. Bowers died Tuesday, while Holmes remains on life support.

The boy was on the street when a dark-colored sedan pulled up and someone inside fired shots, grazing him, before the auto drove off.

Police are reviewing surveillance video and sources indicate that they have "very good" leads on the case.

"But it's just ridiculous that we have to keep seeing children pay the price because we can't hold these individuals accountable". Recent gun violence in Chicago has garnered national attention, with 2016 ending with a record number of shootings and the most homicides in two decades, according to police.

"We just can not afford to continue to see our children being shot down for things that they have no involvement in", Johnson said.

Rauner also said last month during his State of the State address that he was committed to hiring more troopers to patrol Chicago expressways.
