The entire incident was streamed over Facebook Live. On the first day of January alone, 28 people were shot in Chicago, according to data from the Chicago Police Department.

Lavontay White, his aunt and her boyfriend were driving in Chicago when a gunman cut them off, got out of the auto and opened fire on their vehicle. The woman runs from the vehicle screaming and yells that she has been shot in the stomach. "I got a bullet in my stomach".

When the older woman is telling her she's calling 911, Devonte is heard saying, "I can't go ..." "Oh my God, Lord, please".

The 11-year-old, Takiya Holmes, who was shot while sitting in her mother's auto, succumbed to her injuries earlier on Tuesday. No one is in custody.

Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said the slain man is a documented gang member who authorities believe was the shooter's target, the Washington Post reports. The boy was shot in the buttocks and the man was shot in the right leg; both were in good condition at Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center.

"We have very promising leads; we have video", Johnson said. Lavontay White Jr. died a few hours later from his head injury. Earlier.an 11-year-old girl was hit by a stray bullet in the head and died.

A 19-year-old has been charged with her murder. A third person was wounded.

Previous year in Chicago there were 762 homicides and more than 3,500 shooting incidents - totals that far eclipsed those in 2015.

"This has got to stop", Chicago Police Supt. "Our children shouldn't have to keep paying the price for our inability to hold repeat gun offenders responsible for their actions", Johnson said. Recent gun violence in Chicago has garnered national attention, with 2016 ending with a record number of shootings and the most homicides in two decades, according to police.

The violence on the expressways also prompted the Chicago Crime Commission to ask that state and federal officials find the money to purchase a high-tech "expressway video surveillance system". Last year, the city had 4000 shooting victims and 762 homicides, a two-decade high.
