CHICAGO — Video posted to social media appears to show a brazen shooting in Chicago that left a man in critical condition.

The 31-year-old victim was taking part in a “Facebook Live” video — recording himself and streaming the video to Facebook.

He was standing outside a store at 55th and Hoyne in Chicago’s West Englewood neighborhood when the shooting happened.

He was hit multiple times and taken to the hospital, where he was fighting for his life, according to WGN.

Police said the victim is a documented gang member.

They are following up on leads.

    Maybe you don’t understand the concept behind BLM or don’t care to; we expect criminals to commit crimes but we don’t expect police to shoot unarmed minorities at a record pace. And while the victims of police shooting tend to be unarmed minorities it’s no longer solely the case, White people are now subject to the same police abuse we’ve been having to deal w/ for decades. Maybe I shouldn’t expect you to understand the importance of civil liberties or the idea that if one group is allowed to be targeted, the corruptive nature of unchecked power will one day turn on you as well.

      You both know nothing. We protest guns and stopping violence in our on neighborhoods constantly. Speak what you know.

      Spot on! Remember, BlackLivesOnlyMatter when shot or murdered by a White, a “White” Hispanic, or a Police Officer of any race! If Black on Black murder or attempted murder, no problem, no riots, no marches, no burning, no looting, no destroying of their own slums and businesses or newly built low income senior housing! Just no problem!

    • Nay

      U sound stupid and RACIST people in these communities protest against violence on a regular. Next time do your research before you make a statement.

    so now everytime someone “a black person” gets killed we will forever have to hear that one screaming “where’s the protesters where’s the #blacklivesmatter” like when will become leaders and not followers??? this world is so messed up..and when will yall understand that the original #blacklivesmatter DOES NOT MEAN WE HATE WHITES… now yeah other african americans use this platform and they showcase negative cant control every single person…but everyone want to sweep under the rug that the KKK is TRULY a hatred group THEY DO NOT LIKE BLACK!!! anyway at the end of the day ALL LIVES MATTER..and if we all don’t join as one we will all be in a lot of trouble… praying for the world

    • McGee

      Just shut up about the KKK already. Most of them didn’t “hate blacks” and they aren’t even around anymore you ignorant fool. Stop using the KKK as a crutch, like the Jewish media taught you to do.

    I and also my friends were reading through the good secrets and techniques located on your web page and immediately I got an awful feeling I never expressed respect to the blog owner for those techniques. These young men became totally stimulated to read all of them and have pretty much been enjoying them. I appreciate you for indeed being really considerate and also for making a choice on these kinds of useful subject areas most people are really desirous to discover. My very own honest apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.
