Fatal shooting killed two in Chicago including toddler captured on Facebook live

The 2-year-old boy was in a auto with his pregnant 25-year-old aunt and a 26-year-old man about 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in a North Lawndale alley when another vehicle pulled up in the 2300 block of South Kenneth, and someone got out and started shooting, according to Chicago Police.

The man, the 2-year-old boy and a 20-year-old woman were shot about 1:30 p.m.in an alley between the 2300 blocks of South Kenneth Avenue and South Kostner Avenue in the Lawndale neighborhood.

Lavontay is the third child this week to be shot in Chicago. While the boy was revived at the scene, he and the man were later pronounced dead at a hospital. Devonte was later transported to a hospital in fair condition but both she and her unborn child will survive. About three minutes into the video, a series of gunshots were heard as the woman fled from the auto to a home of someone she called "Momma", just a few feet away. "He was shot several times and died as a result of his injuries", Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said. Screaming is heard as the footage becomes jumbled but shows the woman exiting the vehicle and running toward a house. The mother was four months pregnant and was shot once in the stomach.

Last year, there were more than 750 murders and 3,500 shootings - levels not seen in Chicago in two decades. The woman is in critical condition.

Visibly angry, Johnson again demanded legislative action for repeat gun offenders.

Two children have died this week and one is on life support, he said. The Chicago Tribune reported that Takiya Holmes, 11, died Tuesday morning from wounds she suffered in a shooting on Saturday.

Detectives believe the adult male victim had been in some type of dispute with the gunman, according to police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi. "This has just got to stop somewhere". The victims' names have not yet been released. That violence has continued this year, with January ending with 51 homicides, the highest total since January 1999 when there were 55.
