The man and the boy, as well as a 20-year-old woman, were shot while sitting in their vehicle, police said. Shots could be heard, and the woman ran from the auto screaming for help, all while the video continued to roll.

Ms Devonte was shot in her stomach but she and her baby are reportedly in a stable condition at Mount Sinai Hospital and are expected to survive. They say Jones, a member of the Black Disciples gang, saw a group of rivals he suspected of selling weed on BD turf and opened fire.

Police confirmed Tuesday they're looking at a Facebook Live video that appears to show a shooting that killed a 2-year-old boy and injured a pregnant woman. "I got a bullet in my stomach". "I can't go; they might take me to jail".

The nephew and her boyfriend, who has not yet been named, were shot in the head and were later pronounced dead at Stroger Hospital. She is now in fair condition. As of late Tuesday, no one was in custody, but investigators believe the woman's boyfriend was the intended target.

Rauner's office confirms a Chicago Sun-Times report that during his planned budget speech Wednesday the governor will say he wants the state to pay for 200 state police cadets over the next two years.

Reds trade away Brandon Phillips
Zach Buchanan of The Cincinnati Enquirer tweeted that Cincinnati will receive two minor league pitchers from Atlanta in return. He brings a solid combination of power and speed to the table with 197 home runs and 198 stolen bases in his career.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the shootings "must be a turning point" for Chicago, which had more than 4,000 shooting victims and 762 homicides in 2016.

"We just can not afford to continue to see our children being shot down for things that they have no involvement in", Johnson said.

Police are reviewing surveillance video and sources indicate that they have "very good" leads on the case.

"Our children shouldn't have to keep paying the price of our inability to hold repeat gun offenders accountable for their actions", Johnson said.

"We have economic issues in this city that we have to address", he said.
