Toddler, man killed, pregnant woman hurt in shooting caught on Facebook Live

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel released a statement to say that when children are killed "our consciences are shaken and are hearts are broken". The 2-year-old boy was killed along with a 26-year-old man, who was the target of the shooting, a spokesperson for the Chicago Police Department told ABC News.

Lavontay was the third child shot in the city in three days, and the second to die.

There's a deep inequality of gun violence in the city that has seen steep declines in more wealthy communities and increases in a handful of much poorer neighborhoods on the city's south and west sides where the majority of the shootings and killings occur. Kanari Gentry Bowers, 12, who was shot as she played basketball with friends, remained in critical condition Tuesday evening. Police said the officers thought the SUV matched the description of the vehicle wanted in the toddler's death.

"The issue is still creating a culture of accountability for people that fire weapons, and we're just not doing that", the superintendent said. The man, who was in the passenger seat in front of the child, died at the scene and the woman was wounded.
