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.

Check back for more information. She and her unborn baby lived, but the boyfriend - a gang member, according to police - died at the scene. "I got a bullet in my stomach". The 12-year old, Kanari Gentry-Bowers, was also shot Saturday and is now in critical condition at Stroger Hospital. A gunman got out of that vehicle and fired more than a dozen times, according to police, striking the toddler, woman and man. Investigators believe it was her boyfriend in the auto, who was the target.

Visibly angry, Johnson again demanded legislative action for repeat gun offenders.

Johnson said that with "promising leads" and video evidence in the latest shooting, he had no doubt that those responsible would be caught.

Lavontay White Jr. was shot in the head. The pregnant woman, who is the toddler's aunt, was shot in the stomach and transported to Mount Sinai Hospital.

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.
