This is the terrifying moment a yet to be identified man Livestream’s himself as he is being gunned down while standing in the streets of Chicago. In the video the unidentified man can be seen standing outside a closed convenience store at the intersection of 56th Street and Hoyne Avenue. He jokes that the store needs to open to give him 'somewhere to duck and hide for cover'
He spins around capturing his surroundings including another man taking a drink and someone coming out of the store. Loud gunshots are then heard as the man drops his phone on the pavement after being struck by a flurry of bullets. The mobile amazingly captures the gunman race into view firing at least 16 shots as the man tries to escape.
After a brief pause a person out of sight is heard saying he will take the victim to hospital as a woman screams in terror.
A Chicago Police spokesperson told The New York Daily News that a 31-year-old man was shot at the same intersection at 4.48pm on Thursday March 31. The man suffered multiple gunshot wounds and is in a critical condition in Mount Sinai Hospital. His shooter fled in a car. The authenticity or date of the video has not yet been confirmed.
