- A toddler, his uncle and a woman were ambushed by a gunman while driving in Chicago's West Side.
The Chicago drive-by shooting captured on livestreaming video even prompted a statement from Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, who bemoaned the senseless death of the 2-year-old boy. He was identified to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office as Lavontay White. While the boy was revived at the scene, he and the man were later 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. She is now listed in stable condition, with her child expected to survive. About three minutes into the video, a series of gunshots were heard as the woman fled from the auto to a home of someone she called "Momma", just a few feet away. Police have stated they have promising leads in the case.
The woman cried out in pain and ran from the auto, her cellphone camera jerking as she ran along a fence line and a total of 15 gunshots continued behind her. The mother was four months pregnant and was shot once in the stomach. "There's no doubt in my mind that we'll find him". Police continue to investigate.
"Every parent, regardless of where they live, should be able to take their child for a walk to the park or a ride in the vehicle", he said.
