Facebook live stream captures shooting of 2-year-old

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

A two-year-old boy was shot in the head in a drive-by shooting in Chicago's gang-ridden West Side along with a 26-year-old man who was the target of the crime.

The boy was riding in the back seat of a vehicle, with his 20-year-old aunt in the front passenger seat and a 26-year-old man driving, according to authorities, when another man began shooting at them. The 12-year old, Kanari Gentry-Bowers, was also shot Saturday and is now in critical condition at Stroger Hospital. The child was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The woman, who is pregnant, was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital, and she and her unborn child are in stable condition, Guglielmi said.

All three victims were shot inside of a vehicle that was in an alley. Police have stated they have promising leads in the case.

Gun violence in Chicago has claimed the life of a 2-year-old boy whose shooting death Tuesday was captured on Facebook Live.

In the Facebook video, the man and woman can be seen singing along to music as they drove into an alley, and the child is seated in the back of the vehicle. Police said they have a good idea of the identity of the suspect.

Two people were killed, including a toddler, and a third person was critically wounded in a shooting Tuesday afternoon in North Lawndale.

It does not appear that Devonte says anything about her nephew, only stating that they shot her boyfriend. The injured woman then is heard to state "I got a bullet in my stomach ..." "Our children shouldn't have to keep paying the price for our inability to hold repeat gun offenders responsible for their actions", Johnson said.

The shooting came just a few days after two pre-teen girls aged 11 and 12 were both shot in the head over the weekend in Chicago. The city recorded more than 760 murders and 4,300 shooting victims a year ago. Among the other shooting victims were 12-year-old Kanari Gentry Bowers and 11-year-old Takiya Holmes.
