Facebook Live goes wrong: Man films his own shooting in Chicago

Facebook Live goes wrong: Man films his own shooting in Chicago
Footage purporting to show a man being shot in a Chicago shootout has been posted on YouTube. The victim was live-streaming the whole experience on Facebook just seconds before shots rang out and the phone hit the ground.

As the phone hits the ground, another figure can be seen standing above it, returning handgun fire as well. A few seconds pass before screams can be heard and people gather to call the ambulance.

The victim was 31 years old, according to WGN. He was streaming from Chicago’s West Inglewood neighborhood when he was hit multiple times and taken to hospital. Police say the victim is a documented gang member with a record.
