Toddler dies, pregnant woman hurt in shooting captured on Facebook Live

Sun-Times stock

Investigators believe it was her boyfriend in the vehicle, who was the target. The couple can be seen bopping to music, before the sound of gunfire rattles through the frame.

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 auto.

Lavontay's aunt Breunna Devonte (left) was recording their ride for a Facebook Live video at the time and caught the moment that shots rang out on video. "Call 911! They killed him..."

She continued filmed on her phone as she ran away from the gunshots. "Oh my God, Lord, please".

Both Lavontay and his aunt's boyfriend were shot in the head, later being pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. The man, who was in the passenger seat in front of the child also died at the scene, while the aunt, who is pregnant, was shot in the stomach. Kanari Gentry Bowers, 12, who was shot as she played basketball with friends, remained in critical condition Tuesday evening. Antwan Jones, 19, has since been charged with the girl's murder. The older male victim, in his 20s, is a documented gang member.

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

"I'm sick of it, and I know Chicago is sick of it", Johnson said. Two months before that he was charged with aggravated assault of a teacher.

In related news, Dr. Selwyn Rogers, the lead doctor at University of Chicago's new trauma center which is scheduled to be completed early next year, plans to use the medical facility to address the city's soaring gun violence, reports CBS Chicago.

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. The woman then runs from the auto screaming "They shut at us!" Investigators have "very optimistic leads" in the case, police said, adding that detectives are now analyzing surveillance video from the area.

News images from the crime scene showed a maroon Oldsmobile Alero stopped in the alley where police said the victims were ambushed.
