Chicago toddler's fatal shooting streamed live on Facebook

A 2-year-old toddler and a 26-year-old man were fatally shot in an attack captured on a Facebook Live video as they were travelling in a car in Chicago on Tuesday (Feb 14).

The boy was in the back seat of a car with his 20-year-old aunt and the man, who was driving the car. They were live-streaming their car ride on Facebook when another man began shooting at them.

According to AFP via The Straits Times, police said on Wednesday (Feb 15) that they were still searching for a suspect.

The boy, who was identified by US media as Lavontay White, was shot in the head and died later at a hospital.

The man, who was driving the car, also died after being shot in the head. Police said he was the intended target of the attack.

The woman, who was reportedly pregnant, was wounded in the stomach and survived.

In the video filmed by the woman, the trio were travelling in the car.

Around two minutes after the video starts, gunshots began ringing out and the woman fled the car. She ran past a few buildings, then entered a house and screamed for help.
