Pregnant Woman is in Car With 2-Year-Old & Using Facebook Live When Man Starts Shooting at Vehicle

On Tuesday around 1:30 p.m., a 20-year-old unidentified woman was driving around the West Side of Chicago with 26-year-old Lazarec Collins and 2-year-old Lavontay White.

According to the Chicago Tribune, the three were listening to rapper Chief Keef, enjoying the sunny drive, when a car blocked them off.

The woman, who was four months pregnant, was recording her drive on Facebook Live. Around three minutes into the video, her maroon Oldsmobile Alero slowed to a stop in an alleyway.

As the car slowed, the woman looked over to the passenger side of the car. A few seconds later, shots were fired, and the car windows shattered.

The young woman jumped out of the vehicle and ran alongside a wooden fence. She screamed as she ran. Somewhere in the scramble, she got hit by a bullet.

She was able to make it inside of a house of a woman she called “Momma,” though it's unclear whether the woman was her mother. As the girl placed the phone down on a table, the video on Facebook went dark, and the girl screamed:

“Call 911! They killed him […] I have a bullet in my stomach.”

White and Collins had been shot in the head and were rushed to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County. The toddler was briefly revived, but both died from their injuries.

The woman was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital where both she and her unborn baby are in stable condition.

In a statement to the press via CBS Chicago, Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson said:

“It’s just ridiculous that we have to keep seeing children pay the price because we can’t hold these individuals accountable. I’m sick of it, and I know Chicago is sick of it. I just hope our legislative partners are sick of it.”

Collins was recently released from prison, and he was a known gang member, according to Chicago Police Department. Police suspect that Collins had been targeted in the shooting.

The people doing these crimes are jokes. They think the world is in awe, when really the world is laughing at them. Their stupidity is legendary.
