The shooting of Lavontay White and a 26-year-old man were captured on Facebook Live by the woman who was also injured in Tuesday's attack. He did not have the names of the people who were shot and did not immediately know their relationship to each other. Takiya Holmes, 11, passed away from wounds she suffered when a stray bullet struck her in the head as she rode in her family's minivan.
Police said the pair were live-streaming their auto ride on Facebook Live as shots rang out.
She then runs down the alley where they had been driving and begs for a neighbour to let her into their home.
"I think they killed my boyfriend", the victim screamed.
In the footage, the screaming woman appears to leave the auto and flee into a nearby home, where the video portion of the feed ends but the audio continues.
When the older woman is telling her she's calling 911, Devonte is heard saying, "I can't go ..." "Oh my God, Lord, please".
The 11-year-old, Takiya Holmes, who was shot while sitting in her mother's auto, succumbed to her injuries earlier on Tuesday. Relatives told the newspaper she was about four months pregnant and is expected to survive. No one was in custody. Police said they have a good idea of the identity of the suspect.

The musical, starring Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone, has 11 nominations, while Arrival and Nocturnal Animals both have nine each. John Gilbert's editing work on Mel Gibson's drama has been rewarded with a Bafta nomination.
"We have very promising leads, we have video", Chicago Police Superintendant Eddie Johnson said.
"My gut is telling me that when we finally find this guy, we're going to find that he's a repeat gun offender".
Footage of the shooting goes dark after the woman gets inside the home, where she pleads to her mother for help but tells her she can not go to the hospital because she might be taken to jail.
A 19-year-old has been charged with her murder.
The death of the toddler marks the third time in the last several days that a child in Chicago has been a victim of the ongoing violence.
"But it's just ridiculous that we have to keep seeing children pay the price because we can't hold these individuals accountable".
Chicago has seen a spike in gang-related violence that has garnered national attention from both media and President Donald Trump. The issue hasn't stopped this year. That violence has continued this year, with January ending with 51 homicides, the highest total since January 1999 when there were 55.
