VIDEO: Man livestreams himself on Facebook being gunned down on the street in Chicago
Would you take a video of yourself as you are being shot, resulting in critical condition at the hospital, unknown whether you will survive? One man incredibly did this; in today’s era of smartphones with video cameras, it is like real life can now easily mimic Hollywood.
The Daily Mail reports:
In the video the unidentified man stands outside a closed convenience store he says is about to be opened for him to hide in, at the intersection of 56th Street and Hoyne Avenue.
The man wearing a White Sox baseball cap jokes that it needs to open to give him ‘somewhere to duck and hide for cover’ in the West Englewood neighbourhood.
He spins around capturing his surroundings including another man taking a drink and someone coming out of the store.
Loud gunshots are then heard as the man drops his phone on the pavement after being struck by a flurry of bullets.
The mobile amazingly captures the gunman race into view firing at least 16 shots as the man tries to escape.
After a brief pause a person out of sight is heard saying he will take the victim to hospital as a woman screams in terror.
Police later verified a man had been seriously shot at that intersection on that day. Sadly, violence in Chicago keeps increasing; there have been 135 homicides already this year, a 71 percent jump from 2015. This is what happens when you have Democrats running the city. Former Bill Clinton adviser Rahm Emanuel is currently the mayor and President Barack Obama lived much of his life there riling up race relations as a community organizer. God protect the poor people who have been victimized by the politically correct, radical policies of the left, which created this monstrous situation. Prayers for this man who was shot and I hope he makes it out of critical care.
