A 27-year-old Chicago area woman was shot in the arm while streaming on Facebook Live on Tuesday. It all began innocently enough. The victim appeared to be in a jovial mood as she walked across a parking lot of the city’s South Side at around 3 PM, with her phone recording and broadcasting her steps on Facebook Live.
In that parking lot, she reportedly ran into an acquaintance, a woman who was sitting in a car. The woman appeared to be seated in the driver’s seat. A few passengers were with her. Also in the car, a handgun, according to WGN9.
The victim and the woman in the driver’s seat got into a verbal altercation.
“Oh, this b*tch got a gun, y’all,” the victim declared in her livestream. “You got a gun. What are you going to do with it? I’m not worried about that gun, b*tch!”
Then, gunshots can be heard.
“She just shot me,” the victim exclaimed. She soon after began crying.
The shooting itself isn’t visible, but police have confirmed that the victim was shot in the arm. She is currently listed in stable condition.
Police are trying to find the alleged shooter. Because of the video, they think they have a good idea of who the perpetrator is. She is at-large.
There is no immediate threat to the public, according to Fox News. Police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi has labeled the violence a "domestic-related incident between two individuals that know each other."
