Chicago PD investigating FB video

CHICAGO (AP) — The Latest on deadly violence in Chicago (all times local):

_____

10:50 a.m.

Chicago police are investigating a Facebook video they say is connected to the fatal shooting of a 2-year-old boy.

Police spokesman Frank Giancamilli said Wednesday that police have confirmed the authenticity of a video that was streamed live on Facebook. They say it’s part of their investigation in the death of Lavontay White. 

The boy was fatally shot Tuesday when someone opened fire on a vehicle he was in. Police suspect a man in the vehicle who also died was the target of a gang hit.

The video shows passengers in a vehicle listening to rap music before more than a dozen shots ring out. Screaming is heard and the screen goes black but audio continues. People can be heard yelling, “Oh my God,” “I can’t breathe,” and “Please, no, no.”

No arrests have been made.
