LIVESTREAM CRIMES: Murder, Mayhem and Social Media

From sexual assault to murder, the phenomenon of people live-streaming crimes is rapidly growing. How are these disturbing streams disrupting traditional investigative techniques?

A young Los Angeles rapper was shot to death last week while livestreaming with a friend on Instagram, and his final tragic moments have shocked the internet.

Indian Red Boy, whose legal name is Zerail Rivera, was killed on Thursday as he sat in his car in Hawthorne, the Hawthorne police said in a press release on Saturday. His identity was confirmed by the LA County coroner.

Police stated that "officers located a 21-year-old male slumped in the front seat of a vehicle" after he had suffered "multiple gunshot wounds."

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Indian Red Boy was laughing and smiling while chatting with a friend when he was ambushed with gunfire. The video captures how quickly a happy moment turned deadly. He turns to his side with a look of shock. Gunshots can be heard as the car fills up with smoke. Blood then runs from the rapper's head and nose as he tries to mouth “help” to his friend. He is clearly gasping for air and scared in his final moments.

“It appears to have been a walk-up shooting, and he appears to have been targeted,” Lt. Ti Goetz of the Hawthorne Police Department said, adding that Rivera “appears to be a gang member.”

Many took to Twitter to express their shock after watching the video of the murder.

“That video of Indian Red Boy is sad asf I low key wish I didnt watch it,” one user tweeted on Saturday.

Some rumors are swirling that the young rapper’s death has something to do with a defaced Nipsey Hussle mural, Hip Hop Wired reports. No suspects or persons of interests have been named.

Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to contact Hawthorne police at 310-349-2727.
