Less than a week after the murder of Philando Castile was seen on Facebook Live, another graphic shooting has been captured on the platform. According to CBS, three men in Norfolk, Virginia were shot on Tuesday evening during a Facebook Live stream.
In the video, the men were listening to music in a car and streaming it on Facebook. The phone suddenly drops to the floor and what sounds like "at least 30 gunshots can be heard in the background," reports the local affiliate WTKR. "Call 911," a man says. "We need an ambulance, there's three of us shot." Another voice keeps the victims calm until paramedics ultimately arrived. "Stay calm, stay relaxed."
The men were taken to the hospital. Reportedly one is listed as critical and the other two are doing better.
