Woman Shot While Filming Herself on Facebook Live

Chicago Tribune via Facebook Live

A Chicago woman was shot in the arm as she filmed herself during an argument with another woman on a Facebook live stream on Tuesday.

In the video, the 27-year-old and a woman sitting in a vehicle can be seen exchanging words before the young woman is shot during the altercation on Chicago’s South Side. A gunshot is heard before the argument comes to an end. The victim is seen rushing to nearby friends to say she’s been shot.

Although the footage of the incident was widely shared on social media, the victim’s name has not been made public. While police have secured the identity of the shooter, she remains on the loose.

Police say the two women knew each other.

“What I can say is we believe this to be a domestic related incident between two individuals that know each other,” chief spokesman for the Chicago police Anthony Guglielmi said according to the Chicago Tribune. “We do not believe there is any threat to the public as this stemmed from an earlier interaction between the two of them.”

The victim is currently in stable condition.
